    Yes, Linux (and Unix) servers use shared sockets by default... no
    redirect should occur, unless you throw Multi-Threaded Server (MTS) into
    the mix. It's a more robust implementation than on Windows, however, in
    that you can stop the listener without affecting remote connections
    (again, assuming no MTS).
