hi there,

I met the same problem with Troy, and i'm using 2.1.8 0mq version.
I tried zmq_poll as said in
"http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.network.zeromq.devel/6285" with
hwclient/hwserverexample to let client poll before recv any message. But
I always get poll timeout.

here below is the pseudo-code.

zmq::context_t context (1);
zmq::socket_t socket (context, ZMQ_XREQ);
socket.connect ("tcp://localhost:55555");
socket.send (request);
zmq::message_t reply;
zmq::pollitem_t items[] = { { socket, 0, ZMQ_POLLIN, 0 } };
int ret = zmq::poll (items, 1, 1500000);
if (items[0].revents & ZMQ_POLLIN) {
socket.recv (&reply);

zmq::context_t context (1);
zmq::socket_t socket (context, ZMQ_XREP);
socket.bind ("tcp://*:55555");
while (true) {
socket.send (reply);

waiting for ur reply.
