Never tried. If PIPE_NOWAIT is triggered by the client it will be
necessary to implement the SetNamedPipeHandleState call (simple).
Otherwise I would just try it as is with the different pipe modes. It
might already work in which case I suspect you will get an
ERROR_PIPE_LISTENING when the pipe is empty in which case you will have to
do sleep or do whatever you would need to do in that case.

If you send me a packet capture [1] of the desired traffic I might have
more input.
