In my understanding an uPnP server needs to be on the same IP subnet as 
the client requesting data from it, which makes it very badly suited for 
anything but intra-building use (I find that very limiting as I like to 
put fileservers outside my home).

If someone can provide information to the contrary, I'd very much 
appreciate it.

If this indeed is true, uPnP file server protocol should be avoided as it 
limits more extensive content sharing between nodes that are 
geographically separated.
