Hello Sean Conner and Francisco Olarte,
Maybe luasocket doesn't support DGRAM by default. It only supports STREAM for UDS..
Be careful for the corona19. In Korea, everyone wear masks and don't get together if not inevitable.
It was thus said that the Great Francisco Olarte once stated:

To clarify things a bit , you create either a SOCK_STREAM or SOCK_DGRAM
, then bind it to an address. The address can either be a Unix domain,
in the IP domain (IPv4) or IPv6 domain. It maps out as:
Family SOCK_STREAM SOCK_DGRAM
Unix stream datagram
IP TCP UDP
IPv6 TCP UDP
You can have Unix domain sockets with datagrams. How you create these in
luasocket I don't know as I don't use it, but it should be possible.
 I don't use luasocket, but my own module:
 There are other types but they're not important right now.
