8.2. INET-Domain Sockets

These are sockets which are reachable from the Internet directly. The link program tlink is the provided facility for such communication with Interchange. Other browsers can talk to the socket directly if mapped to a catalog with the global TcpMap directive. To improve security, Interchange usually checks that the request comes from one of a limited number of systems, defined in the global TcpHost directive. (This check is not made for the internal HTTP server.)
