How to bypass firewalls in LAN?
Hello to everyone!
I would like to create a simple JXTA application that runs in a LAN, nothing fancy. Still, some computers are protected by firewalls so I can't connect to those and check advertisments of any kind. From what I've read from the documentation using HTTP as a transport protocol might enable me to bypass the firewall.
I know that more advanced solutions exist such as using relay peers, but is it really necesary for a LAN application to use relays?
I must say that my application consists only of ADHOC peers.
Being more precise, is the following code going to work to bypass firewalls? If not what should I do?
NetworkConfigurator configurator = manager.getConfigurator();
Any response will be highly appreciated,
