Hi,

I've got a copy of you "Writing Secure Code" book and in it you suggest that
we should always create our named pipes with the PIPE_FIRST_PIPE_INSTANCE
option. However, the multi-threaded pipe server sample code at the link
below fails on all requests following the initial request. Can anyone
suggest a way of making this work without removing the option above or are
we stuck with the less secure version of this code?
