Two clients cannot connect to each other using PulseAudio. PulseAudio is
using a protocol model where every client connects to the server

You can use the introspect functionality to see what other clients are
currently connected, but you cannot "connect" to other clients, and use
PulseAudio as some kind of client-to-client IPC.

Please remove this ugly disclaimer. You're asking for help on an
mailinglist that is open for everyone to read and learn from. If you
want to be confidential and proprietary, consider hiring consultancy
services instead.
