Hi Anto,

Does building a STUN server should be easy?

How to build a simple TURN server?

I am interested to see the role of 'servers' vs the role of the 'clients'


I'm not sure how easy or difficult it is to build a STUN or TURN server from scratch on our own since I haven't tried it.

For my previous WebRTC project, I used an open source TURN/STUN implementation called COTURN and hosted it on a DigitalOcean instance.
Also, there are multiple publicly available STUN servers that you can use.

For reference: (All STUN servers in this list may not be live)


The task of STUN seems simple, which is telling you your IP, this is why I asked about the complexity of building one.
