As soon as the implementation of UDP or TCP is relatively stable, one possible networking application is a HelenOS IPC bridge.

The network bridge would allow transparent use of a service (or services) running on a remote machine. It would do this by transporting IPC messages (such as DATA_WRITE, DATA_READ, CONNECT_ME_TO, CONNECT_TO_ME and user messages) over a TCP or UDP network socket.

This would only work when the protocol does not require the use of shared memory.
