no, currently that's not possible. The way to go would be to teach the
"unixsock" plugin how to use TCP sockets. Some work towards this has
already been done, the half finished code is available in the
"ff/netcmd" branch of our Git repository.

Numerous people have expressed interest in that approach, but so far
nobody has picked up development.
