Sounds like you want a kind of axtcp (ax25 ecapsaled in tcp/ip) that 
alows to set up a bidirectional link initiated from one side.
I´m not sure what the costs in overhead are for that but agwpe is doing 
something simular with the remote radioport sharing.
the protocol that agwpe uses is not open tough so if someone wants to 
use that it will take some reverse enginering.
