Oh hi !
I’ve seen topics on this before but haven’t found a complete answer yet…
We run a (public, FreeBSD) relay server in our organization’s network and configured our firewalled clients to use it with
relay://..... Everything seems to work fine but what I don’t understand is why two firewalled clients always use the detour through the relay when in fact they could connect directly to each other.
We used pf to set a somewhat sane bandwidth limit for internal and external traffic on top of the unlimited strelay setting but this seems very unnecessary to me. It’d be much faster and simpler for our clients to not go through the relay at all and only use it to connect to external firewalled clients.
Any help? Is this behavior intended?
Cheers and thanks so much for this great piece of software
