Apologies in advance for the relatively noob question and if this is off topic here ( I am not sure...)
The situation is that I have a UDP client and server bound to the same port.
My understanding of NAT is that UDP packets going out from the client to a specific endpoint will result in a temporary entry into the NAT table mapping the source port to the destination endpoint. (Is this right?)
Does this also mean that if an as-yet-unknown endpoint initiates a UDP communication with my server to that same port that the UDP packet will get through? Is there any reason why NAT would prevent this? Does NAT even figure in blocking/allowing these incoming packets?
