       zmq_tipc - 0MQ unicast transport using TIPC


       TIPC is a cluster IPC protocol with a location transparent addressing scheme.


       A 0MQ endpoint is a string consisting of a transport:// followed by an address. The
       transport specifies the underlying protocol to use. The address specifies the
       transport-specific address to connect to.

       For the TIPC transport, the transport is tipc, and the meaning of the address part is
       defined below.

   Assigning a port name to a socket
       When assigning a port name to a socket using zmq_bind() with the tipc transport, the
       endpoint is defined in the form: {type, lower, upper}

       ·   Type is the numerical (u32) ID of your service.

       ·   Lower and Upper specify a range for your service.

       Publishing the same service with overlapping lower/upper ID’s will cause connection
       requests to be distributed over these in a round-robin manner.

   Connecting a socket
       When connecting a socket to a peer address using zmq_connect() with the tipc transport,
       the endpoint shall be interpreted as a service ID, followed by a comma and the instance

       The instance ID must be within the lower/upper range of a published port name for the
       endpoint to be valid.


       Assigning a local address to a socket.

           //  Publish TIPC service ID 5555
           rc = zmq_bind(socket, "tipc://{5555,0,0}");
           assert (rc == 0);
           //  Publish TIPC service ID 5555 with a service range of 0-100
           rc = zmq_bind(socket, "tipc://{5555,0,100}");
           assert (rc == 0);

       Connecting a socket.

           //  Connect to service 5555 instance id 50
           rc = zmq_connect(socket, "tipc://{5555,50}");
           assert (rc == 0);
