- All functionality of the original client, including wallet encryption

- Compatibility with Linux (both GNOME and KDE), MacOSX and Windows

UPNnP port forwarding

To use UPnP for port forwarding behind a NAT router (recommended, as more connections overall allow for a faster and more stable bitcoin experience), pass the following argument to qmake:


qmake "USE_UPNP=1"

(in **Qt Creator**, you can find the setting for additional qmake arguments under "Projects" -> "Build Settings" -> "Build Steps", then click "Details" next to **qmake**)

This requires miniupnpc for UPnP port mapping. It can be downloaded from UPnP support is not compiled in by default.

Set USE_UPNP to a different value to control this:

| USE_UPNP= | (the default) no UPnP support, miniupnp not required; |
| USE_UPNP=0 | UPnP support turned off by default at runtime; |
| USE_UPNP=1 | UPnP support turned on by default at runtime. |
