zmq_bind - assign a local address to a socket
int zmq_bind (void *socket, const char *address);
The zmq_bind() function shall assign a local address specified by the
address argument to the socket referenced by the socket argument.
The address argument is a string consisting of two parts as follows:
transport://endpoint. The transport part specifies the underlying
transport protocol to use. The meaning of the endpoint part is specific
to the underlying transport protocol selected.
The following transports are defined:
unicast transport using TCP, see zmq_tcp(7)
reliable multicast transport using PGM, see zmq_pgm(7)
local inter-process communication transport, see zmq_ipc(7)
local in-process (inter-thread) communication transport, see
A single socket may have an arbitrary number of local addresses
assigned to it using zmq_bind(), while also being connected to an
arbitrary number of peer addresses using zmq_connect().
The zmq_bind() function shall return zero if successful. Otherwise it
shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values defined below.
The requested transport protocol is not supported.
The requested transport protocol is not compatible with the socket
The given address is already in use.
A nonexistent interface was requested or the requested address was
Example 1. Binding a publisher socket to an in-process and a TCP
/* Create a ZMQ_PUB socket */
void *socket = zmq_socket (context, ZMQ_PUB);
/* Bind it to a in-process transport with the endpoint ´my_publisher´ */
int rc = zmq_bind (socket, "inproc://my_publisher");
assert (rc == 0);
/* Bind it to a TCP transport on port 5555 of the ´eth0´ interface */
rc = zmq_bind (socket, "tcp://eth0:5555");
assert (rc == 0);
