  vino-server does not open IGD ports on UPnp router

Status in vino package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I run vino-preferences, and
   - choose to let other to connect
   - and let others take control of my PC,
   - with each acces that must be confirmed
   - but wihtout a password
   - and with "Let automaticallly open ports on UPnP router"

  no port is ever open on the router (i.e 5800 and 5900)

  I have checked this on 2 different setups (pc-router).

  running ubuntu 15.10, and using a tp-link td-W8960N modem-router, even
  after a logout-relogin, upnpc (miniupnpc client) does not show me that
  IGD ports 5800 or/and 5900 is open.

  however, I can check with netstat that those ports are open on
  localhost/my PC.

  it's the same with another ubuntu 15.10 and a freebox revolution
  v3.1.6 using UPnp IGD v1 or v2

  If it's a security feature vecause I don't use a password to allow
  connection, then the checbox "LEt automaticcaly open port on router"
  should be grayed out.
