The ucspi-ipc environment variables

$PROTO is the string IPC. Both ipcserver and ipcclient set this environment variable.

$IPCLOCALPATH is the file name associated with the local socket. Both ipcserver and ipcclient set this environment variable.

$IPCREMOTEPATH is the path associated with the remote socket. Only ipcserver sets this environment variable. If the remote socket is not bound to a path, then this environment variable is set, but empty. Beware that $IPCREMOTEPATH is under the control of the remote user, and can contain arbitrary characters.

$IPCREMOTEEUID is the effective user id of the client process that called connect, in decimal. Only ipcserver sets this environment variable.

$IPCREMOTEEGID is the effective group id of the client process that called connect, in decimal. Only ipcserver sets this environment variable.
