Hi.

The short answer is: you can't. Named pipes on Unix are purely process to process IPC. No networking allowed.

Use a BSD (TCP/IP) socket instead.

Unless you do the networking stuff in another layer that can present your network shares are regular elements in your fs, for example like NFS or CIFS do.

I wouldn't ever, my relationship with NFS has never been an easy one ;)

Well, it won't work. It won't work on any other shared filesystem either.
