I'm a long time fan of Slackware and I've always had a machine serving as my main server/firewall with the latest version installed.

I have it now but I'm struggling to find information on how to setup UPnP on it.

Can anyone please provide some good links where I can investigate further?

I think you are looking for linux-igd.

This project is a deamon that emulates Microsoft's Internet Connection Service (ICS). It implements the UPnP Internet Gateway Device specification (IGD) and allows UPnP aware clients, such as MSN Messenger to work properly from behind a NAT firewall.

This works fine with iptables...
