Pieter - Thanks very much for the quick reply. But what interface would I
bind to for just a standard Pub Sub model like this? I don't know that much
about interfaces and I'm not doing anything tricky - I just want to use a
standard interface for this problem (PubSub across multiple computers) but
I'm not sure what interface to use or how to invoke it.

No, master binds to interface:port, and clients connect to hostname:port.

0MQ does that (reestablishes a connection if needed) automatically.

You should read the Guide, a few times, and it'll become much more clear.
