I'm looking for a source of information on the inner workings of Back to My Mac. I'd like to know things such as:
- Each protocol used (Bonjour, UPnP, mDNS, etc., IPSEC, TLS, etc.)
- The sequence of each transaction (i.e. sequence diagrams for connection setup)
- What router information is stored on Apple's servers
- Which servers are used for which purposes (
Take Control of Back to My Mac had some of this information, but it's no longer available. The replacement book, Take Control of iCloud has very little information on this topic.
While most users just give up in frustration when BTMM doesn't work, if one wishes to troubleshoot connections and see exactly where the problem is occurring (akin to looking under the hood when your car won't start), the information above is critical.
