NAT Hole Punching Revisited

Daniel Maier, Oliver Haase, Jürgen Wäsch, Marcel Waldvogel: NAT Hole Punching Revisited. In: Proceedings of IEEE LCN 2011, The 36th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks, 2011.

Abstract

Setting up connections to hosts behind Network Address Translation (NAT) equipment has last been the subject of research debates half a decade ago when NAT technology was still immature. This paper fills this gap and provides a solid comparison of two essential TCP hole punching approaches: sequential and parallel TCP hole punching. The comparison features current conditions and thoroughly compares setup delay, implementation complexity, resource usage, and effectuality of the two approaches. The result is a list of recommendations and a portable, effectual, and open-source Java implementation.
