linking processes on different nodes?

Hi,

This call will link the gen_server with the rex process on Node, since it's inside it that the gen_server:start_link is evaluated.

You will have to do it manually by sending self() as an argument and handle it in init(). 

Another way would involve a normally spawn_linked proxy process that would stand for the real gen_server, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea.

regards,
Vlad
