NAT traversal for ipsec was sorted out more than a few years ago with 3 or
4 different methods in play. I dropped out of that market about the time
it came to light, but as a ipsec end user I haven't had NAT problems going

(the original problem was that only 1 user behind 1 IP could speak ipsec
because it uses a specific protocol, not a port, that can only be 1-to-1.

around without requiring the NAT devices to do anything. and ssl doesn't
