I suggested Mail Slots as I had worked on implementing it in one of my
projects (controlling a profiling session on a remote computer). It was
very easy to implement it and hence suggested as a way to achieve IPC.
Also, there is not much difference between Mail slot communication on
local computer or remote computer (it is abstracted). Anyway, my views
are based on development on MS Win32.
