NAPT & NAT PMP confusion

Tags:

NAT PMP
Port forwarding
I read a port forwarding article stating that for manual port forwarding you need to disable UPNP & NAT PMP in both torrent client & router setting interface.& then set up static IP addresses
In my modem router interface there is check box option for enabling./disabling NAPT
I'm not sure whether NAPT & NAT PMP are the same or not.
Please help me clear up this confusion

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
NAPT (Port NAT) NAPT maps a single public address to one, or many internal addresses and all network IP addresses on the connected computers are local and cannot be seen by the outside world.

NAT with Port Address Translation (PAT or NAPT) is an extension to NAT in that PAT uses TCP/UDP ports in addition to network addresses (IP addresses) to map many private network addresses to a single outside address.
