About

Allows anyone to serve a tcp/udp server on specified port behind a router that supports UPNP/NAT-PMP, which should be all of them.

Usage

You will need to clone https://github.com/etcimon/kxml to use this. Afterwards, using dub, run dub add-local kxml on your local copy.

  • include nat-opener in your dub project
  • discover the routers with discover() (this will be done every 10 seconds in case you change wifi
  • ask to open the port using open(ushort port, bool is_tcp)
  • it will be closed when the application stops, otherwise use the close function

Behind the scenes, routers and protocols are resolved and commands are sent to the router to redirect the ports to the running webserver.

Examples

Look at the source/natop/opener.d unittest.

This is currently beta, make sure you test it out and report any bugs!
