Let’s assume we have two IPFS peers
B without a common transport. For example,
A is a
go-libp2p node which supports TCP and WS, whereas
B is a
js-libp2p node which supports WebRTC. Can
B communicate with each other?
One obvious idea is to use a relay node
C which supports both TCP and WebRTC, and can relay traffic as follows:
TCP WebRTC A <---------> C <---------> B
Do such relay nodes exist? How would
B communicate with each other today?
