Each of these keywords may be omitted.

If :unix-socket is specified, then none of :hostname , :port and :connection can be specified. If :hostname is specified then :connection must not be specified.The value supplied for :hostname can be a raw hostname, or a string of the form hostname : port . If :connection is specified then it can a string conforming to one of these patterns:


hostname : port

That is, the value connection supplied in a plist connection-spec is interpreted jsust like the part of a string connection-spec following the ' @ ' character.
