routing b/w two tap interfaces connected to bridge w/o using loopback interface

hello all,

i am opening up two tap interfaces, both connected to bridge, assigning them IP addresses and want to open up tcp connection b/w them without using loopback interface, so i bind client socket to first tap using SO_BINDTODEVICE option and socket server listening on other tap device.
The problem is that when i m calling connect, it is giving timeout error.

Is it possible two route traffic b/w two interfaces of same machine w/o using loopback interface and kernel hacking
