A lot of networks today are behind firewalls. In peer-to-peer (P2P) networking, firewall-protected peers may have to communicate with peers outside the firewall. This chapter shows how to design P2P systems to work with different kinds of firewalls within the object-oriented action systems framework by combining formal and informal methods. We present our approach via a case study of extending a Gnutella-like P2P system (Yan & Sere, 2003) to provide connectivity through firewalls.
