The only reason it would not work on 3G, that I can think of, is that the carrier might block connections to specific ports on outgoing. However, I don't think this is strictly point to point. If you have 2 iPad talking to each other they are both behind NAT then they both must connect to a server outside their NATs that will act as a sort of proxy. > > I believe that this is how Skype works. They just call the unknowing servers 'supernodes'. This should also work over 3G unless that carrier blocks it with a firewall or Apple disallows the application from the App store. But neither of these reasons are technical in nature. > > > Wayne > > On Aug 22, 2011, at 10:26 AM, Bing Li wrote: > >> Dear Wayne, >> >> Thanks so much for your email! >> >> I don't understand your opinions well. Jens said 3G did not allow incoming connections. So I think P2P does not work in such an environment. I have to try to use app notifications. The major reason I use P2P is to get a lower load on the server and users can get pushed data. >> >> For iPad/iPhone within a NAT, I will ask the device to connect the server outside the NAT firstly. So a connection can be established. Pushing can be done without the block of NAT. >> >> Do you think my solution works? >> >> Best, >> Bing >> >> _______________________________________________ Cocoa-dev mailing list (email@hidden) Please do not post admin requests or moderator comments to the list.
