Not precisely, no. NAT boxes do not, as a general rule, peer into
SIP exchanges and 'fix' them so that SIP works across NAT, much
to the chagrin of any VOIP sysadmin you might meet.
Neither do they peer into any other UDP payload, and if they
were to, the results would be more disastrous than they are
