    .... I can see nothing is maintaining the LAN/WAN parameters in /etc/sysconfig/miniupnpd which means it is using an incorrect start up.....

    needs a little setup in config, but that is up to the user to get to run correctly. i agree if it was in the app store it would need what ur talking about.

    i set the ext network card and the listening ip...

    # WAN network interface

    # if the WAN interface has several IP addresses, you
    # can specify the one to use below

    # LAN network interfaces IPs / networks
    # there can be multiple listening ips for SSDP traffic.
    # should be under the form nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/nn
    # HTTP is available on all interfaces
    # When MULTIPLE_EXTERNAL_IP is enabled, the external ip
    # address associated with the subnet follows. for example :
    # listening_ip=

    # port for HTTP (descriptions and SOAP) traffic. set 0 for autoselect.

    # path to the unix socket used to communicate with MiniSSDPd
    # If running, MiniSSDPd will manage M-SEARCH answering.
    # default is /var/run/minissdpd.sock

    # enable NAT-PMP support (default is no)

    # enable UPNP support (default is yes)

    # chain names for netfilter (not used for pf or ipf).
    # default is MINIUPNPD for both

    # lease file location

    # bitrates reported by daemon in bits per second

    # "secure" mode : when enabled, UPnP client are allowed to add mappings only
    # to their IP.

    # default presentation url is http address on port 80
    # If set to an empty string, no presentationURL element will appear
    # in the XML description of the device, which prevents MS Windows
    # from displaying an icon in the "Network Connections" panel.

    # report system uptime instead of daemon uptime

    # notify interval in seconds. default is 30 seconds.

    # unused rules cleaning.
    # never remove any rule before this threshold for the number
    # of redirections is exceeded. default to 20
    # clean process work interval in seconds. default to 0 (disabled).
    # a 600 seconds (10 minutes) interval makes sense

    # log packets in pf

    # ALTQ queue in pf
    # filter rules must be used for this to be used.
    # compile with PF_ENABLE_FILTER_RULES (see config.h file)

    # tag name in pf

    # make filter rules in pf quick or not. default is yes
    # active when compiled with PF_ENABLE_FILTER_RULES (see config.h file)

    # uuid : generate your own with "make genuuid"

    # serial and model number the daemon will report to clients
    # in its XML description

    # UPnP permission rules
    # (allow|deny) (external port range) ip/mask (internal port range)
    # A port range is <min port>-<max port> or <port> if there is only
    # one port in the range.
    # ip/mask format must be nn.nn.nn.nn/nn
    # it is advised to only allow redirection of port above 1024
    # and to finish the rule set with "deny 0-65535 0-65535"
    allow 0-65535 0-65535
    allow 0-65535 0-65535

  • i had miniupnpd installed two days ago and it worked perfect. i think i got it off tim burgess site or fast update mirror.

    peter baldwin was maintaining it:

    ref thread:

  • ldap kept hijacking my password so i gave up and reloaded clearos. i set to mount my Raid6 array @ /var/flexshare and setup flexshares, users and groups. all is working all i need to find is miniupnpd. good idea to do an include for user specific smb.conf settings.

  • thanks tony, but i already gave up and reloaded clearos. if i run into this again, I see bind_pw; perhaps that was the password i needed.

  • Where can i find miniupnpd for ClearOS 7.4?

    I've reinstalled ClearOS and am looking for miniupnpd, can't find it. I can't seem to search the 7.x fast updates repo (

    i've tried list, it comes back no matching packages.
    # yum list enablerepo=* miniupnpd

    Hi, can't you access non of the network shares? So home directory and flexshares?

    You indeed have to create a user in system -> accounts -> users and add that user to a group. With the credentials you created on ClearOS you can login on your network share with you Windows client.

    My "flexshare.conf" looks really different.

    Did you edited flexshare.conf manually?

    I don't understand flexshare and have not used it, does it tie into samba in someway?

  • if i create a user with useradd how can i get the dashboard/gui to recognize the user i created. now i can't add user to groups, "usermod -aG group1,group2 user".

  • i created a user in system accounts, but after a week the password was changed and i no longer could access shares and if i tried to change it with with command shell it asked for the ldap password. so i deleted it and added it with useradd and set password and now it works. why would ldap take over a user???

  • How to create user accounts - simple server

    I'm on windows 10 trying to login to my samba user share and it will not recognize my password.

    On Windows 10 i've been using Microsoft accounts (not local account), so i've changed my User Name in windows 10 to EricA; i'm using user Eric on windows 7 with a different password so i created a new user erica. So i have two users, eric and erica (system - accounts - user).

    Is this the proper way to create samba users/passwords by just creating a clearos user?

    last week this work, this week after rebooting my clearos server it doesn't work.

    i can't add a user/password as it already exists...
    # smbpasswd -a erica"
    ldapsam_getsampwnam: Duplicate entries for this user [erica] Failing. count=2
    ldapsam_add_sam_account: User 'erica' already in the base, with samba attributes
    Failed to add entry for user erica.
