No, communication is uni-directional as well. Only the client side can send
requests to the server side. If you want a bi-directional connection
between two nodes A and B, you will have to configure a client connection
on A to B, and vice versa. This is roughly the third time I'm trying to
implement an efficient RPC mechanism for Erlang and I feel this is the most
optimal way to design it.

I'm still thinking of supporting bi-directional connections, but I haven't
worked out the best way to do it - it may never happen.

cheers,
Chandru
