A remote TCP port may be forwarded to a local Unix domain socket and vice versa or both ends may be a Unix domain socket.

+2.4. connection: Unix domain socket forwarding
+
+OpenSSH supports local and remote Unix domain socket forwarding
+using the "streamlocal" extension. Forwarding is initiated as per
