My solution is to have somekind of a pool using non-blocking select. if 
it has input then he does the recvfrom else sleeps for a period of time 
and the checks again for input.
Ths other solution was to have a L4 server to relay messages... but then 
i would also have the IPC overhead... so i went to the solution above.

thanks for the help
