This specification defines a protocol that allows the host to control the
operation of a relay and to exchange packets with its peers using
the relay. TURN differs from some other relay control protocols in
that it allows a client to communicate with multiple peers using a
single relay address.
The TURN protocol was designed to be used as part of the ICE
(Interactive Connectivity Establishment) approach to NAT traversal,
though it can be also used without ICE.
