The directory is exist as I could create the file with mknod.
As an alternate of socket file, I create /opt/_flowd/.fifo (with
"mknod <fifofile> p") and a PERL script to read from .fifo and write
it to another file with changing the filename every 15mins in this
The reason of my script is to change the log filename every 15mins.

[root at localhost _flowd]# grep -v ^# flowd.conf
listen on 0.0.0.0:1111
listen on 0.0.0.0:1112
flow source 10.0.0.0/8

I know that and I want to be part of the experiment :)
