Er. That's not news. That's been the state of the art for what, 15+
years or so now? SIP (because it's peer to peer) and P2P are really the
only things that actually give a damn about it.
No one is going to check out their neighbors website running on their
neighbors computer if the neighbor didn't make an effort to make their
computer a server (by assigning DNS, running server software, etc)
regardless of NAT etc etc.
