A named pipe is a Windows specific interprocess communication method that allows processes on the same or different systems to communicate with each other. This setting allows you to define exceptions to the "Network Access: Restrict anonymous access to Named Pipes and Shares" setting below. Pipes listed in this setting can still be accessed anonymously (aka Null Session) even if "Network Access: Restrict anonymous access to Named Pipes and Shares" is enabled. This setting is necessary since there are a few components of Windows with name pipes that must allow anonymous access in order to function.
