I assume this is linux specific as I haven’t found any Mac, BSD or Solaris
> If I change the endpoint to “ipc://test_filter_ipc.sock” it works. I also notice that it’s using ZMQ_PAIR sockets, which according to the docs are only for inproc: transports, so I’ve changed this to ZMQ_DEALER, which also matches usage of the “bounce()” test function.
