Hi Baptiste,

in general our current firewalling approach is to keep defaults for IPv4 
and IPv6 relatively close (not considering NAT here of course). Opening 
up the IPv6 firewall by default would be unexpected and I don't really 
like the approach for that matter and honestly I don't trust client 
devices that much.

However the packaged version of miniupnpd does indeed support both UPNP 
WANIPv6FirewallControl and PCP. One of my colleague recently ran a test 
with PCP and said miniupnpd and it works fine.
