Socketpipe directly connects the input/output of a remote process with
local programs over a TCP/IP socket. Although the initial communication
setup is performed through client-server intermediaries such as SSH or RSH,
the communication channel that socketpipe establishes is a direct socket
connection between the local and the remote processes, similar to a local
pipe. The use of socketpipe removes the inefficiency of multiple data copies
and context switches through RSH/SSH, and can in many cases offer dramatic
throughput improvements.
