[zeromq-dev] ELI5: Why can't I get the IP address of the machine that sent a message?

Hi folks,

We had a problem a while back where some 'unknown machine' was sending
malformed messages and causing our ZMQ based app to lose it's mind. It took
a while to figure that out... And then once  a developer on our team found
the nastygram he had trouble figuring out what machine was doing this.

Is there a design reason that we lose this information in the area between
plain ol sockets and ZMQ messages getting delivered to the application?

Thanks for your patience and such a great library!
