We Solve Dpnhupnp.dll Errors
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) devices running on Microsoft DirectPlay typically call on the services of a NAT Helper to allow it to connect multiple computers to the Internet using a single IP address. The DLL dpnhunpnp.dll is the Microsoft DirectPlay NAT Helper UPnP Library that contains the functions for this.
The Network Address Translation (NAT) Helper does its job on Microsoft DirectPlay by detecting attached UPnP drivers and devices and responding to queries for connection to the Internet or any other IP Network. The NAT file is also known by the names Network Masquerading, Native Address Translation or IP Masquerading.
When used in computer networking NAT acts as transceiver of network traffic through a router that involves re-writing the source or destination IP addresses. It also re-writes the TCP/UDP port numbers of IP packets as they pass through as well as the checksums. By going through this operation NAT enables multiple hosts on a private network to access the Internet using a single public IP address.
The dpnhupnp.dll file helps in establishing connection by deploying the helper service on the Internet. For DirectPlay in UPnP devices the dpnhupnp.dll aids during initiation of the connection but the actual connection goes directly from the NAT server to the NAT viewer connector.
On Windows Vista, DirectPlay and DirectX have been designed to support many innovative features. Foremost of these is the integration of various NAT interfaces which have made it easier for players behind routers to host games. This resolves the issues faced by players on broadband Internet connections with regards to hosting games.
NAT has also been recognized as a practical solution to the impending exhaustion of IPv4 address space. As more and more UPnP devices are developed DirectPlay users turn to NAT to resolve connectivity issues for multiple players on UPnP platform.
With NAT networks that used to require a class B IP range or a block of Class C network addresses can now be connected to the Internet using one IP address. Because the dpnhupnp.dll implements only minimal bidirectional connectivity it helps in preventing malicious activity initiated by outside hosts from reaching local hosts.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
