    UPNP. most all modern games have this on by default, it opens the ports required when the program is initialized and closes those ports when the program is terminated.

    UPNP leaves a small security hole that can only be accessed by a program that's on your computer, in other words if you got a Trojen/Virus on the local machine it would open any ports it so pleases. no Trojan/Virus no security hole.
