Node traversal

I aim to understand how NAT node traversal works in IPFS. I’ve found but it does not exactly answer my question. In comparison, here’s an illustration how Freenet’s node traversal work:

Can this be compared to how IPFS’ traversal work, or is there any differences?

Copied from original issue:


Images like this are very important to adoption and being able to conceptual grasp the work being done. I look forward to when a figure is posted that helps demonstrate node traversal. I am particularly interested because I am trying to identify a library/libraries that are suitable for the Quantum Resistant Ledger. We are currently using twisted.internet.protocol and I believe there are better options.
