NAT

P: n/a
If instant messaging uses IP and a Port to communicate, how do the
applications work behind a NAT?

Hi Matt,

ALL tcp protocols ( HTTP, TCP, etc ) use IP and ports cause those are the
basics elements of the protocol. If you want to know how NAT works take a
look at google for "NAT explained"

This is the second link and it seems good:

Hope this help,
