You don't technically need a server; it's just the easiest way to set up 
a session. Technically, all you need is some means of rendezvous and a 
channel to exchange information about device capability, intention, 
location on the network, and so on. You can use any arbitrary means to 
exchange that information, as long as it's kind of real-time in nature 
(email would probably work; carrier pigeon would pose problems).

for an example of someone's experiments doing WebRTC from a file:// URL.
