Drb through NAT/firewall problem

I have a Drb server and Drb client that work fine when the
client is calling from the same net as the server.

When trying to access the server from a client behind a
firewall with NAT enabled, problems start : the server tries
to resolve the DNS of the client, which cannot work, since
the client has an intranet IP.

This makes me beleive that the Drb protocol is not
NAT-friendly, and that it cannot work without some sort of
proxy, or firewall workaround for a single natted client. Hopefully
I'm wrong...

Did anyone use Drb through NAT successfully?

Solution found: DRbFire works just fine for this purpose.
