| I have a very simple proposal for the server: it should be possible
| client can ask the server what its own IP address is. This is
| situations where the client cannot determine its real external IP address
| (client is behind NAT), yet another client wishes to directly connect
| (say, via JEP-0046: DTCP).
| What do others think?
The only complaint I can think of is jabber is 'supposed' to be
transport-layer-neutral. IE: TCP is just one way of using the jabber
protocol. In the future it may run over different network transports,
perhaps ones that don't have IP's.
I like it, though it could produce phoney results if the jabber server
itself was firewalled and being port-forwarded.
