No new application level protocol (set of request/response messages) is
required for server-to-client communication, just consider the 'server' to
send requests and the 'client' to return responses (reverse their roles).

What is needed are approaches for delivering an unsolicited request message
to a protected or behind-a-firewall machine. (If the receiver of the
unsolicited message is not protected by a firewall, then it can be
considered the same as a traditional 'server'). Another way to think of this
is to separate which device initiates a network connection and which device
sends the application-level 'request'. 

For example, if the desktop initiated a network connection to a big remote
machine, and the remote machine responded with a signal (that clients and
intermediaries understood) to switch 'roles', then the client would become a
server (receiver) listening for requests and the server would become the
client (sender) sending requests. Perhaps the HTTP CONNECT method or Upgrade
header may be useful here.
