Self Host over Named Pipe

Oct 15, 2013 at 2:20 PM
Is it possible to Self Host OWIN over Named Pipes? Is this question not even in line with what the vision of OWIN is?

OWIN is strictly targeting HTTP. HTTP normally does TCP/IP over Sockets. It might be possible to do HTTP over named pipes, but I haven't seen an implementation of this. I assume you want to do this to communicate between processes? If so your options are to do named-pipes without OWIN, or localhost sockets with OWIN.

Ah, here's a server that's done HTTP over named pipes:

It's doesn't support OWIN, but it does demonstrate the possibility.
