NAT Traversal

Understanding Network Address Translation (NAT)

Network Address Translation (NAT) is a widespread technology that helps conserve IP addresses. Most home and business routers use NAT, allowing multiple devices on a private network to share a single public IP address when accessing the internet.

NAT and Connectivity Challenges

While NAT streamlines IP address management, it creates barriers for direct device-to-device communication:

Overcoming NAT with NAT Traversal

NAT traversal is a collection of techniques designed to enable connections between devices located behind different NAT networks. Common methods include:

Netrinos and NAT Traversal

Netrinos leverages sophisticated NAT traversal strategies to facilitate secure connections between your devices, even when behind different NATs or multiple NATs. This seamless navigation is crucial for reliable communication in today's diverse networking landscapes.
