	<section id="binrpc">
	<title><varname>binrpc</varname> (string)</title>
	<para>
		Specifies the transport used for the binrpc protocol.
		The following transport protocol are supported: Unix datagram
		sockets, Unix stream sockets, UDP and TCP.
	</para>
	<para>
		The format is: [ protocol:] address_port|path .
	</para>
	<para>
	<itemizedlist>
		<listitem><para>
			For <emphasis>Unix</emphasis> sockets:  [unixd|unixs|unix]:path
			where <varname>"unixd"</varname> means Unix datagram sockets and
			<varname>"unix"</varname>  <varname>"unixs"</varname> mean Unix
			stream sockets.
			Examples: "unixd:/tmp/unix_dgram", "unixs:/tmp/unix_stream",
			"unix:/tmp/unix_stream".
		</para></listitem>
	<listitem><para>
		For <emphasis>UDP</emphasis> or <emphasis>TCP</emphasis> sockets:
		[udp|tcp]:address:port.
		If the address is "*" or missing, it will bind to all the local 
		addresses (0.0.0.0).
		Examples: "udp:localhost:2046", "tcp:localhost:2046",
		"tcp:3012", "udp:*:3012".
	</para></listitem>
	</itemizedlist>
	</para>
	<para>
		If the protocol part is missing and the address/path part looks like a
		file system path it will default to a Unix stream socket and if not to
		an Unix UDP socket.
		Examples:
		<itemizedlist>
			<listitem>
				"/tmp/unix_test" - equivalent to "unixs:/tmp/unix_test".
			</listitem>
			<listitem>
				"localhost:3000" - equivalent to "udp:localhost:3000".
			</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
	</para>
	<para>
		Multiple transports / listen addresses can be specified, just by
		setting the parameter multiple times.
	</para>
	<para>
		<emphasis>Default:</emphasis>
		"unix:/run/&kamailiobinary;/&kamailiobinary;_ctl" (Unix stream socket).
		The default value is used <emphasis>only</emphasis> if no
		<varname>binrpc</varname> parameter is found in the config file.
	</para>
	<example>
		<title>Set <varname>binrpc</varname> parameter</title>

    <title><varname>binrpc_buffer_size</varname> (integer or string)</title>

	<section id="fifo">
	<title><varname>fifo</varname> (integer)</title>
	<para>
		fifo used for the obsolete fifo protocol.
		The fifo protocol can be run over a real fifo, over UDP or over TCP.
		Format: [protocol:]path|address.
		If no protocol is specified the default is "fifo".
		Examples: "fifo:/tmp/kamailio_fifo", "/tmp/kamailio_fifo2", "udp:*:2050",
		"tcp:localhost:2050".
		For more details on the UDP and TCP formats see 
		<varname>binrpc</varname>.
		Multiple fifos or fifo transports can be used in the same time
		(just by setting the <varname>fifo</varname> parameter multiple
		times in the config).
	</para>
	<para>
		Default: not set (no fifo will be used).
	</para>
	<example>
		<title>Set <varname>fifo</varname> parameter</title>

# old fifo support
modparam("ctl", "fifo", "fifo:/tmp/kamailio_fifo")      # classic fifo
modparam("ctl", "fifo", "/tmp/kamailio_fifo2")

	<section id="autoconversion">
	<title><varname>autoconversion</varname> (integer)</title>
	<para>
		Enable or disable automatic type conversion globally, for all the
		methods parameters.
		If on, a type mismatch in a method parameter will not cause a fault
		if it is possible to automatically convert it to the expected type.
	</para>
	<para>
		Default: off 
	</para>
	<para>
		It is recommended to leave this parameter to its default off value
		and fix instead the client application (which should use the
		proper types) or to modify the target rpc to accept any type
		(see the rpc scan '.' modifier).
	</para>
	<example>
		<title>Set the <varname>autoconversion</varname> parameter
