Question about VMCI

Is there a forum around for VMCI?

I'm trying to test out vm to vm communication using vmci sockets on windows guests.

The Programming Guide doesn't mention much about the vsocklib.dll provided with vmware tools. It shows a diagram of a Windows app using vsocklib.dll to talk to the vmci driver, but I'm unsure of how to use it. Is there a typelib for it? Should the vmci_sockets.h list the exports from it?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
