Greetings Rony,

No, I do not have the necessary skills to take on the task. The task seemed 
pretty important, and thus it stuck in my mind.

I am thankful,

Hi Michael,

AFAIK nothing has happened since then. Would you be interested in taking this

Today in a FaceBook group I'm a member of, someone made a post about a remarkable result obtained from ChatGPT. I decided I would check it out, using a problem that I struggled with for two months, then gave up an implemented a less than optimal solution that fixed the problem but was not exactly secure.

The problem in question was the problem caused when the rexxapi daemon gpt created by a process with elevated privileges, which prevented processes with non-elevated privledges from connecting to the rexxapi daemon via the named pipe. I struggled for several months trying figure out the Windows documentation for the security APIs and a lot of time in StackOverflow trying to find some examples I could adapt. I came up empty and ended up creating the pipe with no security restrictions.

So, today I asked ChatGPT how to create a named pipe that only users of the same process could connect to. It immediately gave me a program that created the named pipe using the same code we were using at first that had the elevated permissions issues. Not what I was looking for, but impressive nonetheless.

I told ChatGPT has issues communicating between processes with elevated permissions. It agreed with me and produced a new program that I *think* might be exactly what is needed to close the security hole. I was truly amazed!

I don't know if I'm interested in fixing this myself, nor if I'll have the 
time. However, I want to post the code suggested by ChatGPT in case anyone else 
wants to adapt it to rexxapi communications.

Did that suggested code prototype ever make it into the ooRexx RexxAPI 
communications code base?

I am thankful,
