The [\pipe\proxy] bit is optional. If it is not specified, it will be
  provided by the server through the end point mapper interface
 (basically a UUID -> endpoint address lookup).

The interface UUID is retrieved from the ndr_table_ pointer you specify
when connecting.

The connection is really client<->server. Only the client can make
requests, the server can only answer.

You can open back a connection from the server to the client, but I'm
