thanks for the nice comments gals ;D
@Mike: great idea, but it would be better implemented in UDP. with UDP you would have simple NAT punching and you wouldn't have to forward a port.
the downside: UDP is really unreliable and I was too lazy to make it more reliable for sensible use. if you make it correctly you would have sth. similar reliable as TCP, but in comparison worse in speed and cleverness. why reinventing the wheel? and with Ipv6 we don't need NATs anymore. maybe its already possible to use Ipv6, I'll look into this.
