Android Server Project
By Adam Curry on Saturday, June 02, 2012 at 6:15 PM.
I"ve been tinkering on a project I have been thinking about for a couple of weeks. permalink
The idea involves running a small http server on the android platform. permalink
A lot of fun and interesting work has been done in this area, including a version of apache that runs on android. permalink
There's only one problem I'm running in to; most mobile carriers use their own (internal) sub networks for mobile connectivity. This makes creating a publicly accessible server running on Android complicated, if not impossible. permalink
Network Adress Translation, VPN's and portforwarding are non starters for what I'm looking to do here permalink
I'd be ok with a 'man in the middle' solution, as long as the server in the middle didn't actually have to pipe data from one peer to the other. permalink
Lots of apps enable a peer2peer connection with the help of a central server: whatsapp, skype, iChat etc. permalink
What is the protocol, if it exists, to establish a simple http session between firewalled peers? permalink
