On WAN, but "opening" the port per se isn't sufficient when the target is
behind NAT.  You'd need a NAT Redirection entry, and only the one
specified system would be able to use that protocol.

In general, P2P and NAT don't get along well, since there's no way to
identify a particular NATted "peer" as a destination.
