+ \value UserAccess
+ Access is restricted to the same user as the process that created the socket.
+ \value GroupAccess
+ Access is restricted to the same group but not the user that created the socket on Linux.

+ \property QLocalServer::socketOptions
+ \since 5.0
+ The setSocketOptions method controls how the socket operates.
+ For example the socket may restrict access to what user ids can
+ connect to the socket.
+ These options must be set before listen() is called.
+ In some cases, such as with Unix domain sockets on Linux, the
+ access to the socket will be determined by file system permissions,
+ and are created based on the umask. Setting the access flags will
+ overide this and will restrict or permit access as specified.
+ Other Unix-based operating systems, such as Mac OS X, do not
+ honor file permissions for Unix domain sockets and by default
+ have WorldAccess and these permission flags will have no effect.
+ By default none of the flags are set, access permissions
+ are the platform default.

Stop listening for incoming connections. Existing connections are not
effected, but any new connections will be refused.
