2.2. UNIX and INET modes
Both UNIX-domain and INET-domain sockets can be used for communication. INET domain sockets are useful when more than one web server, connected via a local-area network (LAN), is used for accessing an Interchange server.
Important note: When sending sensitive information like credit card numbers over a network, always ensure that the data is secured by a firewall, or that the Interchange server runs on the same machine as any SSL-based server used for encryption.
Use the -i and -u flags if you only want to use one communication method:
# Start only in UNIX mode VENDROOT/bin/interchange -r -u # Start only in INET mode VENDROOT/bin/interchange -r -i
