             I am working on an application which needs to use the 
win32pipe module from
ActvieState.  However I wish to open a connection to an existing named 
pipe and then post and receive messages without disconnecting.  I know I 
can use win32pipe.CallNamedPipe but that connects and disconnects on 
every transaction.  I've been playing with the win32pipe API but I can't 
quite get it to work.

    Please could someone let me know how to make a permanent connection 
to an already created named pipe?

If this isn't the correct newsgroup for this question, apologies - 
please could you let me know the correct group?
