  1. STUN

    STUN is a standardized set of methods and a network protocol to allow an end host to discover its public IP address if it is located behind a NAT. It is used to permit NAT traversal for applications of real-time voice, video, messaging, and other interactive IP communications. It is documented in RFC 5389. STUN is intended to be a tool to be used by other protocols, such as ICE. The STUN protocol allows applications operating behind a network address translator to discover the presence of the network address translator and to obtain the mapped IP address and port number that the NAT has allocated for the application's User Datagram Protocol connections to remote hosts. The protocol requires assistance from a third-party network server located on the opposing side of the NAT, usually the public Internet.
