You can use »netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/ to at least test for UPNP access from the wan side .
Will be near the top of the results listing ,may have to hit + to get full details .
said by planet:Neither Netalyzr or the Rapid7 net scans work, period. I tried them on Win7/IE9, WinXP/IE8 and WinXP/Firefox. On some it does nothing, on others the scan runs all the way through and continually repeats, never taking you to the Results. said by TamaraB: said by norwegian:
It doesn't work for me though. Chrome had a cog turning, IE9 doesn't do anything.
Nor for me either. There is no Mac version. Glad to see it can test from the Internet though. If Grc adds an Internet test for this it would be great.
Wouldn't work on iOS/Safari either. Cog just spins.

I've use netalyzr for many years on XP and now Win 8. On XP, I sometimes had problems with it not starting but that is because it didn't like my old version of Java which eventually would run only on IE6 and so both IE and Java were too old for it. It was fine once I finally updated Java.
On Win 8, it works fine on Fx 10 ESR, Opera 12 and IE 10. It is an excellent tool to analyze your network connection. It tells me some bad stuff about my connection that concerns me more than UPnP which I already knew about anyway.
