RMI Small Problem

Dear Readers,
I know how to call the methods of a RMI Server from a RMI Client but suppose I want the RMI Server to call methods of the RMI Client then how do we do it?? How do we keep track of the clients that are connected to the Server??
Like in Socket programming we can easily keep track of the Clients with the help of sockets and so if the Server wants to communicate with the Client then it writes to the Socket. But in RMI how is it possible?

With Best Regards,

You need to read about RMI callbacks
