[zeromq-dev] router-to-router pattern: how to ensure peer is ready

Hi Pieter,

Just to make sure I get it right, do you mean that each node should have two sockets: 1 router(server) and 1 dealer(client)?

Right there, you're doing it wrong.

Don't try doing router-router, it is a non starter. Instead do
dealer-router where dealer is "client" and router is "server" and then
double up this so each node plays client and server.
