As the subject says really, Is UPnP disabled/blocked on Mesh partners?
I use Home Assistant it picks up both my RT-AC86U and RT-AC68U.
The stats from the 86U work fine as the primary but the 68U always fails.

*Pedant alert - gross oversimplifications in the following post*

UPnP sits at the interface between your local network and the wider internet. So if you have a Mesh or AP on your local network, any ports that UPnP would open/forward are on the router and not those Mesh or AP devices.
Regards SNMP, if you have the right equipment it'll run on devices throughout your network, but I'm not clear on what exactly you are wanting/needing/expecting it to do.

Home Assistamt with UPnP enabled allows it to automatically pull a load of data in, throughput uptime etc. I can this via SNMP and the link I found to set it up.
More secure etc :)

I assume you're talking about this: https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/upnp/

miniupnpd only runs on the router, not the nodes as the nodes are not internet gateways devices (i.e. routers).
