Skype is really clever at trying multiple workarounds. It can do direct connections, STUN, use a peer2peer approach to use a 3rd-party's bandwidth (which saves skype costs of a central server), or use a skype.com server. It also adapts to use the available ports. If it were only an open protocol, I'd strongly recommend it.

Direct, STUN, and proxied are all pretty easy to implement (especially with help like https://github.com/jselbie/stunserver ).

I haven't heard of the peer2peer approach. Any more info or code on this?
