Title: NAT Traversal (allow connections between two passive clients)
Post by: FlipFlop™ on April 26, 2011, 11:49:36
The next update of FlexHub will allow NAT traversal for clients in NMDC as developed by BigMuscle for StrongDC++ (http://strongdc.sourceforge.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6001) .

This technique is used to allow two passive clients to connect to and download from each other.

Currently the parsers for ConnectToMe and RevConnectToMe don't allow the extra information needed for NAT traversal, but this is fixed in the update to be released this week.
