Ticket #77 (new defect)
|Reported by:||phil||Owned by:||phil|
obby or Gobby should provide UPNP support to open a dynamic port forwarding on the router. Universal Plug'n'play seems an invention of Microsoft but neverless it is supported by many home routers. It is used mainly by games to request a port forwarding for the hosting player from the NAT box to the one on which the game runs.
Nattraverso is a Python library developed for the Google Summer of Code which implements NAT traversal through UPNP. I don't know yet if we could borrow some code there or integrate it. This would solve at least some hosting problems of a centralised model.
