You could have the slave listening on a local socket only , that is
URI ldapi:// which would be more convenient.
There are two methods to replicate data, push and pull. While slurpd,
although a client, can be considered as push method, with syncrpl the
provider is pushing, when the consumer is in freshAndPersist mode,
while the consumer is pulling when in refreshOnly mode.
