stun implementations?

I'm looking for STUN client and server implementations that I can use for a
class project.  They don't need to be the latest spec (i.e. don't need
security), and they don't need to interoperate with anything but each other.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

NAT MIB

Here is my first review of the NAT MIB (draft-ietf-nat-natmib-05.txt):

section 4.3
"Likewise, the session entries are derived from the Binds and 
   an entry MUST not exist in the Session table without a 
   corresponding Bind table entry."

What is the behavior expected when a Bind table entry is deleted, and session entry exists? MUST the session
entry be deleted as well, or MUST the Bind entry NOT be deleted while there is a reference to it?

section 5
"Following is the list of protocol specific information, identified at
this point, which could potentially require protocol specific
extensions to this mib:

o Each protocol could support its set of timers and/or other protocol
  specific configuration parameters for operation with NAT.
o Statistics could be maintained per protocol, and type of
  statistics could be protocol specific.
"

To ensure that extensions play by the same rules, these should probably be turned into SHOULDs. It will not
help interoperability if extension X1 provides timers and counters, while X2 supports only timers, and
X3 supports only counters, and so on. The purpose of IETF documents is to define standards - what is the
*standard* to be followed when implementing extensions to this mib? When is it appropriate to add timers?
When is it appropriate to add counters?

The MIB:

RE: It's that time - wg agenda

Hi Melinda,

As we work to design a solution to meet the semantic requirements, I think we are likely to find some issues
with the existing document. I suggest it would be better to wait until we have gotten further along on the
design team work before going to WG last call on the semantic requirements.

FW: [NAT] NAT MIB

Hi, 

I am forwarding the response for the David's Comments to the MIDCOM group
for further comments.
We definitely need feedback on whether the NAT MIB just need to support
TCP, UDP and ICMP protocols; or we need to add the provision for the protocol
extensibility. IMHO, adding protocol extensibility makes MIB more complex
and we gain very little from this.

Thanks
Rohit

Re: FW: [NAT] NAT MIB

Hi,

the protocols TCP, UDP and ICMP are fine. How about IP itself? The 
semantics talk about TCP, UDP and IP and don't talk about ICMP. So 
TCP,UDP and IP would be fine to have.

Also IPSec ESP/AH (These are part of IP, just want to make sure it is
considered if necessary).

Could I put a word in for SCTP on that list of protocols?

I assume, you are refering to Basic-NAT.
The description for the fields natConfLocalPortFrom, natConfLocalPortTo,
natConfGlobalPortFrom, and natConfGlobalPortTo
do state that they should be 0 for Basic-NAT address mapping.

> semantics talk about TCP, UDP and IP and don't talk about ICMP. So

You are right. We did not state the interpretation of
these fields for ICMP packets. We will include the text for ICMP
(as described in RFC 3022) in the next rev.

RE: FW: [NAT] NAT MIB

Hi Christopher,

The NAT-MIB draft is intended for use with just TCP, UDP and ICMP 
protocols (in the context of NAPT). NAPT behaviour for these 
protocols is documented in RFC 3022.

Having said that, natConfProtocol is BITS type. Any protocol 
exensions and the corresponding MIB extensions for these 
protocols should be reviewed independently in seperate docs.
IMHO, making protocol extensions to NAT in the NAT-MIB is a 
slippery slope.

suresh

RE: FW: [NAT] NAT MIB

Hi Tom,

How is NAPT expected to function with SCTP (say, as different 
from TCP)? As I mentioned earlier (in reponse to Christopher),
I believe, protocol extensions (outside of TCP, UDP and ICMP)
should be considered independently in an extensions document.

cheers,
suresh
