p2p hole punching in LAN

Ask Questions: If the two nodes are under the same router, can you directly connect to the LAN with the help of the external node at this time ?




Generally not. This is called hairpinning and this feature is disabled on a large number of routers by default, so we should not rely on it.

For peers discovery on LAN you can use broadcasting instead, for example.
