[zeromq-dev] Client port in TIME_WAIT tcp state

We use REP-REQ socket pattern over TCP transport. Upon client disconnection, the port stays in TIME_WAIT tcp state, waiting for its lifetime timeout to occur. This is a problem when there are high volume of rapid REQ connections within the timeout period and cause port exhaustion.
Is there a way to transition from TIME_WAIT state so that port is available to reuse once client has disconnected?
