I think this might help you. Also, if you're connecting through a router, be sure that has UPnP enabled as well in the router configuration page.

Good Luck.

That's what kids do when they don't get an answer. He'll probably make another one after this, too.

OP, a word of advice...When you ask such a question, make sure to give people as much info as possible. UPnP is done through your router. So what kind of router do you have?

And the fact that your NAT is strict probably has a lot to do with the fact that you're using a bridge. So I'm assuming, using your wireless laptop to connect. If that's the case, that's the problem.

The laptop setup isn't an "official" one, and therefore doesn't work right. It CAN be done, yes. But it takes constant re-configuration.
