this is a basic network question, and not a lua related question.
Anyway, Luasocket does not do anything specific for nat. When a package traverses the network from A to B there may be any number from 0 to n of nat translations in which source or destination ip/port might be updated.
But this always happens out-of-sight of Luasocket.
Solutions have been presented;
-know the destination ip/port and time the connect attempt, both sides simultaneously
-use a server to setup initial connection
Or update your question to be more specific.

Onderwerp: Luasocket - Tcp and udp to devices behind NAT
A lot of people were really helpful to my previous question regarding NAT traversing.
I have got another..
While using "luasocket" library, if the server and client are behind a NAT, how does luasocket handle tcp and udp connections?
