What does this port forwarding indicate ?



I got my new EE Smart Hub running last night, and this morning I checked the logs.


There are a few entries like this, but nothing showing on the 'firewall/port forwarding' tab.

What is going on ?

Hi @Dragonfly 


It's updates from your ISP and other devices on your network connecting to the internet, or other devices on your network. (Printer,mobile,etc)


If you disable UPnP then these should will drop off (if you can manage UPnP)



To contact EE Customer Services dial 150 From your EE mobile or 07953 966 250 from any other phone.

EE standard opening hours are 8am to 9pm weekday, 8am to 8pm on weekends.

Re: What does this port forwarding indicate ?

Thanks for that. I've just checked what the 'client IP' is.


It's my Seagate NAS, which I'd forgotten about !. ( It's hiding behind the telly ).


I've now turned off UpnP, let's see how it goes.


Cheers !

There's nowt wrong with leaving the NAS ON & its ports auto forwarded by uPnP. It must be intended by Seagate.
