NAT Traversal Compatibility Survey
June 14, 2010 5 Comments
Search support for NAT traversal has landed in the DC++ trunk. It’s not yet in any unstables builds, but it should show up in Toast’s ADCPortal build archive shortly as DC++ revision 2160 or later. Passive mode automatically enables NAT traversal; there’s no explicit setting for it. If it works, two passive users are able to communicate directly with each other via a client-client TCP connection and search and transfer files between each other.
The DC++ developers are interested in the success or failure of NAT traversal depending on individual conditions. In particular, router model and operating system have a large impact. Thus, anyone trying this feature (it requires that both involved clients support NAT traversal) is encouraged to describe their results in the DCDev Public hub at adcs://devpublic.adcportal.com:16591 or the ADC Portal forums with their operating system, router setup, and degree of success.
