Re: couldnt listen - unable to forward port via UPnP

uPnP - is a service that attempts to auto-config.
In this situation, the torrent client is attempting to use uPnP to open a port on your router.

(Its kinda like plug&play for networks & doesnt really work/has issues.)

what torrent client are you using? What OS and router?

in a nutshell:
you need to manually give your torrent client a port number (to chat on)
then, via a browser, 'open/forward' that port number in the router.
