Ok, is your UNIXServer implemented in a multithread fashion? (so it
could hadle multiple clients to connect).

how its coded?

Like this:

require 'socket'
SOCKET = "/tmp/sample"
server_thread = Thread.start do # run server in a thread
  sock = UNIXServer.open(SOCKET)
  s1 = sock.accept
  p s1.recvfrom(124)

client = UNIXSocket.open(SOCKET)
client.send("hello", 0)

I compared unix sockets to windows pipes... which is wrong, my mistake.

Have you tried connect to ruby clients in the same machine to the
running socket server?

If that works, then your problem could be... anything ;-) (just kidding)
