Mike, do you have a working code snippet that I can test? I have a 6/06 system, a Nevada build50 system, and can create others. I could write the code myself, but if you already have a tested sample...

Didn't work :-(
Let me know if you have a different experience.

Subject: [zones-discuss] ?: named pipes between zones using shared filesystem

I have no reason to believe the following will not work, but I would
like to confirm....

If a file system is shared between two zones (via lofs), can named pipes
be used to communicated between the two zones?

If the filesystem is mounted read/write in one and read-only in the
other, will this communication be limited to sending informaton from the first to the second?

Based on what I know of the security model, nothing in zones should
prevent this.
