If you have not changed this setting UPNP will be enabled by default, check to see if it is enabled already.

Also, if you plan on accessing the camera from home, you might want to try to manually forward the ports if the UPNP is not working.  Disabling UPNP is more secure anyhow.

Here are your steps if it is not enabled.

I've been reading some other posts, UPNP may not be enabled by default after all.  That would be encouraging to me, it should only be enabled if the user environment requires it.

Hope you get this taken care of.
