The UPnP standard is supposed to make your life easy. Every port that is needed publicly by a device on your network will automatically be forwarded. This would make the DDNS Access to your camera very easy...unfortunately it often does not work and might be considered a security hazard by your network administrator. Please deactivate UPnP if you are working with a manually forwarded port for your camera.
