In this demo we present our approach for establishing a communication channel between hosts behind a NAT-based router. To do so, we developed a peer-to-peer based variant of the STUN protocol using so-called superpeers. Using this protocol we determine the used NAT types for the hosts and select a suitable NAT traversal technique dynamically.
