does port 213 need to be open on both computers?

The main reason I want to run a tunnel is so only the host has to have an open port. Some people just can't setup port forwarding, so I need a work around. If GIT can't tunnel this way, is there any other program that can?

If you use the TCP connect for the GIT connection, you don't need to forward any ports, but the other side will need to forward port 213 and use TCP listen. For UDP, both sides must forward port 213 if using NAT.
Some programs might not work as well if you tunnel UDP inside of TCP though, and many games that use UDP will likely get very laggy if you tunnel UDP inside of TCP.
