peer to peer addressing

By webmaster ·
As a developer I am faced with producing a peer to peer communications product. Using MsWinsocks and both peers having public IPs this is no problem. When one or both peers have a private IP (a corporate Lan or likewise) and not in the same Lan, the bridge being the internet, I am having diffaculty addressing the peer(s). The MsWinsock has properites of Remote IP and port only. If I must connect to the NAT or Proxy how do I get it to deliver the data to the peer behind it?

In general, the client behind the proxy or NAT has to connect to you. Most routers can be set up to route incoming non-response traffic addressed to a particular port one (1) internal machine. This is used, for example, to put a mail server behind NAT. You can use it with PPTP, but only for one machine per LAN.

Good luck.
