For records, I had sent a mail regarding mail-slots. IMO, it uses very
low level (BIOS) communication and hence might be the reason for
bypassing firewall. The link the mail I sent is below:
 I have implemented a mail-slot server and a client in one of my
projects (to control profiling on remote computers). It seems very
striaght forward and simple. The MSDN has sample code which I just
hacked to get a client/server working with in 1hr to 2hr. So, it must
be trivial for the experienced folks here on emacs devel.
