Socket not responding to emit message #601

I see a connected message but no response to the message I am emitting?

var io = require(''),
    socket = io.connect('targeturl', {
        port: 8080
socket.on('connect', function () {
    console.log("socket connected"); //this is printed.
socket.emit('list', {"user":'username',"token": 'mytoken'});
socket.on('message', function(data){

socket.on('error', function(data){
    console.log(data); //nothing is printed

Can anyone explain why this doesn't work?

The message event is only emitted when you use socket.send(). Furthermore, that event is emitted server-side, not client-side.
