Hi Carlos,

zbeacon should work on Mac. The rbczmq gem wraps this functionality and has some tests to verify it working from within ruby. I’ve tested this on Mac, SmartOS and Linux. But I think the gem is still using czmq 2.0, not 2.2 yet, so there could have been some changes between then. I’m a bit busy to take a look right now unfortunately, but maybe you could start by seeing if there are any changes between czmq 2.0 and 2.2.
