Feature Request: Sockets (For Vpns And Other Applications)

Recommended Posts

What would be really cool is to be able to use the BTSync protocol to establish a socket connection from one location to another. This could be used for VPNs and other applications. Ideal for a world where few have a fixed IP number.

I don't think that will work. The latency involved in BTSync connections makes them virtually unusable for anything time-critical (and TCP packets are).

You don't need a fixed IP address for VPNs (most of them will work with DynDNS-like services), and there also are enough VPN solutions that work even when both ends are behind a NAT, carrier-grade or otherwise.
