new upnp rules appeared on smart hub2 for youview (giraffic)

HiA ll

 

Just about to add a new port forwarding rule on my Smart hub 2 and all of a sudden I'm seeing 4 UPnp rules have been added for various UDB port for Giraffic to my youview box.

 

I always thought Upnp would simply allow the connection when requested but not make a rule for it. They weren't there a couple of weeks ago, is this a new thing?

 

Thanks

Okay, so the host was named as youview in the network section on my smart hub, but have checked the IP and it's for my Smart TV.

 

For now, I have deleted these. I will leave uPNP on for now with extended security but may disable and add more port forwarding rules

I expect you have a Samsung Smart TV, as I think you will find its to do with content delivery.

What is Giraffic UDP?
 
 
Giraffic is a company that develops "Distributed Adaptive Storage & Streaming" as well as had developed "Adaptive Video Acceleration” software that attempted to improve the performance of streaming video. The source was Wikipedia.
 
You can of course, disable UPnP.
