I think you can do what you want much more easily, and with less
latency, than what you are trying. In my setup, I use multiple RF
remotes that transmit to a single receiver on the server. LIRC is set up
lircd --driver=usb_uirt_raw --device=/dev/USB-UIRT
(Your driver, device and IP address will, of course, vary.) The
frontends have their Myth LIRC socket set to 192.168.64.1:8765. MFE then
reads keypress commands directly from LIRC on the server.
I also run irexec on the server and the clients, but that's not essential.
