    is it safe to leave the UPnP enabled ?

    Hi Emil, it is safe to leave it enabled. Many routers come with UPnP enabled by default (reference).

    It doesn't work. My router says it's enabled UnPnP, but, my phone says it can't connect.

    How do you determine the Monument MAC address?  It's an Apple Airport network and with the latest updates to IOS 11 + they've shut off MAC address reporting (because of abuses, apparently). 

    I've examined the Monument (plugged into Ethernet) and the packaging that came with it.  Usually there is a MAC address sticker on other gear, particularly NIC cards, but I don't find it here. 

    I've tried several OSX and IOS scanners that report MAC address in other systems, but all I get is "not reported" on the Airport network.

    If your router doesn't show the MAC address, ping the IP of your Monument then enter the following in Windows cmd.

    arp -a

    (replace with IP address)

    Incidentally, UPnP shows a device on port 8201 with IP x.x.x.6 but Monument is IP x.x.x.7.

    Something odd there which needs looking into.

    Hi, James! If you have both Ethernet and Wi-Fi setup with Monument, you could be seeing two different IP addresses.

    Has anyone had luck getting the Monument setup for remote access on an Airport Extreme router? I have set up the port forwarding as above, but it is still showing "cannot enable remote access"... I'm stumped!
