Router on its own adding a port mapping - I did not do it.

Hi, I have not added any port forwards. I do not have remote management enabled. Please see the following. Why are there entries to add and delete port forwarding if I'm not doing it? These are from the Event Log.

I figured this out. UPnP was enabled on the router which can automatically add port forwarding. Since turning this off, I have had no further port maps.
