STUN (Simple Traversal of UDP for NATS) specifies a mechanism which
enables nodes in a private network to determine if they are behind a
NAT, to discover their remapped address and port, and for many types
of NATs to send UDP traffic through them. In addition TCP
connections initiated from the private side of NATs already works.
This document specifies requirements for a mechanism that enables
traversal of expected TCP traffic through all NATs, and traversal of
UDP traffic through symmetric NATs.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
