I just want to throw in, that there is also a NAT punching protocol 
called Teredo [1] which can be used to pass NAT routers. Especially on 
Windows systems (XP SP 2+) this protocol can very easily (=nearly 
transparent for the client) be used. Teredo can even be used with all 
file transfer protocols we already had (jabber:iq:oob, Bytestreams and 
Jingle) without modifications in the file transfer protocol.


[1] for information on Teredo see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teredo_tunneling - note: this page talks 
about IPv6, but note that IPv6 is only the addressing used on top of 
Teredo. Teredo itself runs on UDP over plain old IPv4. So no IPv6 
connectivity or special internet accounts are needed to use Teredo.
