Is there a officially defined position with regards to 0MQ's ability to
work in a client/server architecture where the client might be behind a
firewall/NAT-router? If so, where can I find this documented?
In this scenario, what is the support for:
1. TCP transport REQ/REP
2. Multi-part messages
3. TCP transport XREQ/XREP
4. TCP transport PUB/SUB (where server is publishing)
5. PGM (where server is publishing)
My assumptions are:
1. You can bind to a TCP socket on the server, and connect to it
with the client for all of the above (1-4).
2. Further, I assume #5 above, PGM (server publishing) would not
work through a firewall.
Can anyone confirm these?
It is easy to make some assumptions about this, and test them to
confirm, but this would not assure their continued support in later
