Automatically enable and disable a router's DMZ
Authored by: irfanr on Oct 20, '05 04:29:38PM

This is a cool hint! Thanks for that. In addition to the DMZ opening, one can also activate built-in firewall to protect the computer, which can also be done by running a command along or after this script. For BitTorrent clients, I use Azureus with UPnP plug-in and that seem to work with all routers that support UPnP. This saves me from opening DMZ port. I wish there were more internet apps with UPnP support between Mac and other devices or a central UPnP control on OS X so that other apps can use it when needed.
