The establishment of point-to-point connections between hosts behind NAT boxes have been always a problem due to the problem with the private IP addresses and NAT rewalls. To solve this problem, there are di erent techniques to make possible that hosts behind NAT boxes can establish a point-to-point connection rounding NAT rewalls and using solutions to exchange their IPs. The goal of this thesis is to present an implementation of a communication protocol which establishes a communication between agents that are behind NAT boxes avoiding all the problems that could occur during the communication, such as duplicated IP addresses or host unreachable errors and introduce to the reader some related work about NAT traversal. There is also in this thesis a little introduction to the existing techniques used to round a NAT rewall and the explanation of why we use NAT boxes even though they sometimes are a problem.
