Just out of curiosity why did you call this a NAT issue? It sounds more
like a firewall issue. The only way that this could work without having
to unblock ports is to use a port the you already know to be open. Is
having the clients open up the ports really a problem. This is the whole
idea behind firewalling. Block out everything except the ports that you
need open but if you need a port you should be able to use it. If the
people that are using your client are concerned that this would be a
security risk just ensure them that your app does not have any whole
(once  you have made sure that this is true of course).
