Thank you Arun,

This partially resolves the issue, but it still does not work if the server starts with some delay with respect to the client (that is the case in my code).
The following gets stuck:
fi_rdm_pingpong -p verbs 192.168.2.253 & sleep 1; fi_rdm_pingpong -p verbs -s 192.168.2.253
Maybe a correlated point: my code does not perform the initial “handshake” for filling AVs, it simply fills them “statically”.
Is there any specific reason for which the handshake (as is performed by any sample code I saw so far) should be preferable?
> You can also try using the ofi_rxm provider which provides a connectionless interface to verbs. This is a layered provider which runs over FI_EP_MSG interface of verbs provider.
On my system, I see a bunch of “sockets;ofi-rxm” providers (no verbs;ofi-rxm or similar).
One of them is as follows:
Should I try this one?
