Table 27 describes the details of the Reverse Connect Server Facet. This Facet defines support of reverse connectivity in a Server. Usually, a connection is opened by the Client before starting the UA-specific handshake. This will fail, however, when Servers are behind firewalls with no open ports to connect to. In the reverse connectivity scenario, the Server opens the connection and starts with a ReverseHello message requesting that the Client establish a Secure Channel using this connection.
