Spread runs as a deamon. When you connect, you are connecting to the 
daemon, not to the network.

There is nothing to stop there being a sender and a receiver (or even 
multiple ones) on the same daemon.

If all you are trying to achieve is IPC on the same machine, there are 
probably better ways to achieve that than going through Spread.
