Basically, I just want to invoke *fast RPC*. That's it. D-BUS is relatively
fast comparing to XMLRPC though its 1.1 version has got incredible
performance improvement in abyss server code.
Also, I want secure transport since what we are going to send out
to network is very sensitive information.
Probably you wouldn't recommend D-BUS such use but I just wanted
to give it a try. Anyways, going back to my original question,
the "tcp:host=xxxx,port=xxxx" doesn't work here, what I'm missing?
The test apps test-thread-server and test-thread-client won't work
over network? Or do I need some tweaking to make them work?

Thank you for the info.
