[Condor-users] Using STUN instead of the CCB

Hi folks,

I've been reading about the Condor Connection Broker (CCB) and my
understanding is that it provides a central point where two services,
like the scheduler and the starter for example, can exchange packets
if they are both behind firewalls. So, I was wondering if Condor also
considered using STUN [1] to achieve the same objective while having
the above mentionned "central point" incur significantly less bandwidth
overhead. The only difference with this approach is that it only works
with UDP, whereas CCB could also work with TCP. However, since Condor
already has the concept of a SafeSock, then this could potentially
work, right?
