I configured IPTABLES and it is running correctly - the router on Slackware received a Public IP and by DHCP gives Privates IPs to my hosts.

I forwarded some ports to some Private IPs, so that some software has the direct access from the outside...

But my PS3 doesn't have Universal Plug n Play enabled. How can I enable it on IPTABLES? Is it some kind of forwarding, DMZ or just I have to enable some modules?

If necessary I can copy my IPTABLES here...

You could try to manually open ports TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658
as specified in this document:

You could also take a look at this product. It is a IGD - UPnP gateway program  for linux:
