Thought it was obvious. If the uPNP setting is off, then uPNP is disabled for all of Pi-Star, including Dashboard Access, ircDDBGateway Remote, and SSH Access (see next). So if it is off, it was be clearer if those settings were dimmed and disabled.

Those particular setting have nothing to do with uPNP. They are seperate firewall setting.

I still dont get where you are trying to go with this

Andy wrote in his answer to my previous question about this:
"2. uPNP set to off, is universally off, no D-Star ports requested and no Dashboard/remote/SSH requested either, its all on, or all off."
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=334&p=1155&hilit=upnp#p1155

If I correctly understand Andy's answer, then I'm just making a simple suggestion for a change to the design of the Firewall Configuration module to make things clearer. In the suggested revision, if uPNP is set to off, you can tell just by looking, with no further explanation needed, that the other three settings are then also disabled. As the Ui is currently designed, you might think that when the uPNP setting is off, you can still make changes to those other settings that actually have an effect.

Since my testing shows that Auto AP still works when uPNP is off, I moved that setting to the top to show clearly that it is unaffected by the uPNP setting.
