zmq_connect - connect a socket
int zmq_connect (void *socket, const char *endpoint);
The zmq_connect() function shall connect the socket referenced by the
socket argument to the endpoint specified by the endpoint argument.
The endpoint argument is a string consisting of two parts as follows:
transport://address. The transport part specifies the underlying
transport protocol to use. The meaning of the address part is specific
to the underlying transport protocol selected.
The following transports are defined:
local in-process (inter-thread) communication transport, see
local inter-process communication transport, see zmq_ipc(7)
unicast transport using TCP, see zmq_tcp(7)
reliable multicast transport using PGM, see zmq_pgm(7)
With the exception of ZMQ_PAIR sockets, a single socket may be
connected to multiple endpoints using zmq_connect(), while
simultaneously accepting incoming connections from multiple endpoints
bound to the socket using zmq_bind(). Refer to zmq_socket(3) for a
description of the exact semantics involved when connecting or binding
a socket to multiple endpoints.
The connection will not be performed immediately but as needed by
0MQ. Thus a successful invocation of zmq_connect() does not
indicate that a physical connection was or can actually be
The zmq_connect() function shall return zero if successful. Otherwise
it shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values defined below.
The endpoint supplied is invalid.
The requested transport protocol is not supported.
The requested transport protocol is not compatible with the socket
