Your best action is to read the Guide and especially the chapter on
custom routing.

I'v'e tried to have the workers open ZMQ_REQ sockets to boss, and it works fine on Mac OS X, where workers block on "send" until the boss is up and alive. But on Linux the "send" doesn't block, even if the boss does not exist yet (and no error returned either), so this approach does not work.
