Re: nvdaremote is back up

I believe the server component of NVDA Remote has also been released as open
source code now as well, so it is possible to run your own equivalent of the
nvdaremote.com "middleman" on any machine which is accessible to the two
clients wishing to communicate with each other.

The initial release was only of the client code, which mean you could either
do peer-to-peer, if the clients could see each other directly over a network,
or use nvdaremote.com as a middleman, but now that the server code has been
released as well, there is no need to trust any third party even when you need
to connect two computers, neither of which has a public IP address, and you
cannot set up a VPN between them.

Hi,

NVDA Remote does not require nvdaremote.com or any other site. One can use
the add-on to remote control a computer over one's own network, a VPN, or
the internet, though the last is somewhat less secure than one might wish.
Nvdaremote.com is fairly convenient, it allows bypassing port forwarding
and IP address/domain name issues, but using the nvdaremote.com server is
certainly not necessary and may not even be wise for privacy reasons. Aman

so is this add on even relyable then?

Yes it does.

It has gone down in the past - sometimes for hours, sometimes less and
sometimes more.

So does this actually rely on just one site to work. Is this not a
