I have dd-wrt netgear router . Upnp service is disabled on it. I know I can also disable Upnp on my desktop machine by going in services.msc and disabling Upnp device host and SSDP.
I know that if I disable Upnp on my router, I can't access my network video recorder to which my IP cameras are connected.
However, what are the advantages/disadvantages of disabling the above two services in windows? What is the difference between the two?
