These options have to do with how MPI processes communicate with the
process manager and its proxies. Typically, MPI processes communicate
over a Unix socket with the process manager or proxy.
--enable-allowport makes it so TCP/IP communication can also be used for
this feature. This option only applies to the gforker and remshell
process managers (--with-pm=gforker,remshell).
--enable-pmiport applies to the Hydra process manager, but is
conceptually the same.
Hope this helps.
