hey everyone, i tackled the problem last morning!

if you want to establish a connection through the NAT, you should run a RendezVous and a Relay on WAN side with a public IP, such as my example Do not forget to set the RendezVous as the RendezVous_seed in your Relay peer, and set the Relay as Relay_seed in you RendezVous.

Then, on the LAN side, set the RendezVous and the Relay as your Edge peer's RendezVous_seed and Relay_seed respectively.

First, start RendezVous and Relay on your WAN side;

Second, start your Edge peer in your LAN side. Remarkably, you should wait for a little while, maybe scores seconds, to let the peers refresh their peerList.

Finnally, you would find your Edge in your LAN side has connected to a RendezVous peer!
