The recommended way is to use UNIX socket (the default is /tmp/clamd.socket),
unless you want to use clamd from another computer.  The reason is that the UNIX
socket is a local file, nobody else has access to it so it is secure, the TCP
socket is like any other service, a port listening on the network.
