what the EndPoints should be used to access teredo interface from outside the LAN ? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm trying to build a UDP-based p2p c# application using Teredo , and I managed to enable this interface on my windows 7 OS using the command :

    netsh interface teredo>set state client 60 23456

    and after activating it the command (netsh interface teredo show state printed :

    Type                    : client
    Server Name             :
    Client Refresh Interval : 60 seconds
    Client Port             : 23456
    State                   : qualified
    Client Type             : teredo client
    Network                 : unmanaged
    NAT                     : symmetric (port)
    NAT Special Behaviour   : UPNP: Yes, PortPreserving: No
    Local Mapping           :
    External NAT Mapping    :

    and pinging google ipv6-based host using the command (ping -t -6 printed :

    Pinging [2a00:1450:4007:807::2004] with 32 bytes of data:

    now my question is : is this enough to say that I'm accessible from outside my Lan using teredo ? and if so .. what my external End points that will let other peers to access me ?

    this is my c# code for listen to the teredo interface (correct me if something wrong with it) :

    UdpClient Client = new UdpClient(23456, AddressFamily.InterNetworkV6);
    int counter = 0;
        IPEndPoint RemoteIpEndPoint = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any,0);
        Byte[] receiveBytes = Client.Receive(ref RemoteIpEndPoint);
        string returnData = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(receiveBytes);
        Console.WriteLine(RemoteIpEndPoint.Address.ToString() + ":" + returnData.ToString() + " -" + counter);

    and this is my code for send a message from a peer to my pc (here I got confused) :

    UdpClient client = new UdpClient(AddressFamily.InterNetworkV6);
    byte[] Message = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("Hello my fiend");
    //not sure what to put here .. but the following works and print results in the listener console from within my LAN 
    client.Send(Message, Message.Length, new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Parse("2001:0:53aa:64c:3057:6dae:4308:b55e"), 23456));
