Thanks! Funny thing is that I've been wanting to do true peer-to-peer over UDP (no relay) for awhile. I actually saw gFile and used that to re-write croc. It has been an unreleased v5 of croc.

The v5 of croc is truly peer-to-peer using WebRTC however it does not appear to be very reliable. Most of the time it works, but sometimes it doesn't and I can't figure out why. Also I've found that the transfer speeds are not as fast as using parallel TCP sockets (which is v6 of croc, the current version).
