Can an introducer share LAN addresses between peers so that local peers can connect without LAN broadcasts?

What the title says. If you have an introducer that receives LAN addresses from the nodes that connect, could it share the LAN addresses in the introduction if they have the same public IP so that they can discover each other on the LAN side without having to broadcast on the LAN?

Lan addresses are already advertised as part of discovery, so I am not sure about the value of this.

So if I want LAN nodes to find each other, I need my public node to also be running a discovery server?

Contrary to its name, global discovery will also advertize LAN addresses. So you could simply enable that if broadcasts don’t work for you.

Introducing a device has zero relationship to locating the ip address of that device.
