I believe that is something that has to be built into the kernel, if not a module

Do a google for UPnP for linux, there should be a site with examples

I use Gentoo and configure and compile the kernel myself but don't seem to find any option for this in th config,do u have any idea where it would be in the kernel config?
Also i googled and found some pages

http://linux-igd.sourceforge.net/index.php
http://www.cqure.net/wp/?page_id=25
http://upnp.sourceforge.net

which one do u think will be most appropriate?

Don't forget, with a security point of view, you will always be better to forward specific ports than unable upnp/nat transversal... Even more if you are a windows users. Thoses nasty spyware will use that nat transversal against you Exclamation

You'd be right if every machine behind the router is a Linux Desktop. The fact is that usualy, you will have a Windoze machine behind that router. Even though Linux is "protected", the new virus/script/trojan/etc will use upnp to route a port in the router directly to the windows machine... So goodbye security.

But if everymachine is a Linux/BSD/mac/secure, than using upnp can be safe.
