    JBossMQ and NAT (Network Address Translation)

    Reinhard Verch Newbie

      Hi,
      we have a problem with Network Address Translation (dynamic) and JBossMQ. The server will connect to the Client IP in his subnet behind the router.

      What can we do?

          Did not understand the question.

            I am also very puzzled by this question.

            Take for instance cable modems (usually use dynamic IP)


            Case Scenario:

            Household 1 has a router having public IP
            behind this router is >= 2 host machines
            Host machines have a local subnet IP 192.168.#.#

            Household 2: identical to Household 1 but, of course a
            different house

            A = a host machine from Household 1
            B = a host machine from Household 2
            C = a host having a public IP (not shared)

            Let's start from the base of my confusion:
            can A create a socket connection with B?
            What are the possible ways these 2 hosts can send
            messages to each other?

            A can see C, but C can't see A?
            A & B can't see each other?

            And at the top of the pyramid:
            Is it possible for A to send an asyncronous message
            to B using JBossMQ? Explain please.

            how about A & B talking directly to each other bypassing a central server if both hosts are connected to the Internet. If this would work it would save a lot of strain on the central server (C)

            I hope the response to this clears a lot of confusion others may share with me.

            I'll leave firewalls for another time.

            Please, someone clear our confusion!
