    v20 v21  
    1616* '''unix domain socket''' connections using the {{{bind}}} option. From the same machine only - potentially as a different user. This is obviously restricted to Unix like systems. When using this type of direct connection locally, you should also be using "{{{mmap}}}" for maximum speed (which should be enabled by default). For connecting to a different user, you may need to use the "{{{socket-dir}}}" option to place the socket in a public location, and maybe also "{{{mmap-group}}}" to make the socket accessible to other users.
    1717 When starting a server, a socket is automatically created for it by default.
    18 * '''named-pipes''': experimental in version 0.17 (#1150), MS Windows only
     18* '''named-pipes''': MS Windows only (#1150)
    1919* '''VSOCK''' using the {{{bind-vsock}}} option, for host - guest virtual machines connections, see #983
    2020* '''TCP''' connections using the "{{{bind-tcp}}}" option. May be specified more than once to bind to multiple ports or IPs, supports {{{IPv6}}}. These can be secured with [/wiki/Authentication authentication modules], in which case you probably want to enable [/wiki/Encryption encryption] too to prevent some MITM attacks.
