That's not the shibboleth2.xml from the dist folder, that's the example-shibboleth2.xml which is a lot more verbose (more examples,
etc.) and hence not recommended for your purpose of starting simple.

Also opening a unix domain socket won't work on MS-Windows, so those defaults are not usable for you. (Maybe an issue in the packaging, but then example-shibboleth2.xml is just that, an example.) -peter
