No - it has already been shown.  Your netstat output in previous mails

tcp        0      0 localhost:879           *:*                     LISTEN

Which clearly shows that it is only listening on the localhost address, which
is only accessable via the loopback interface (and hence _only from the
localhost itself_).

If you don't believe me, try connecting from a remote host to this port.

If you want to use gkrellm with pmud and NOT use tcp/ip then you'd better get
out your "How to program C" book and write a new system.  The _only_ way the
two applications communicate currently is via this tcp/ip connection.
