Timeouts are not handled by 0mq. You must create the logic in your application to deal with these issues yourself.
This may be covered in the user guide. Check http://zguide.zeromq.org/chapter:1
If not, here is how I would suggest you try to handle this in your application.
1. Use a XREP socket on your server. The XRE? sockets do *not* enforce a strict send/recv ordering like the REQ/REP sockets.
2. After you call zmq_close() on the original REQ socket that timed out, make sure that the *new* REQ socket you build has the same identity as the old one. I *think* 0mq will honor that (use zmq_setsockopt(IDENTITY, x) to set it) for routing a delayed response back to you. Again, your application will need to know how to handle a delayed response.
3. When you call zmq_close() on a socket now, any messages in progress will be dropped. 0mq releases all resources associated with the now dead socket.
