newbie: tcp transport problem

I'm working on some client/server kind of apps and want to use
D-BUS for RPC. I checked mail list log and it is possible to use
tcp transport by passing "tcp:host=hostname,port=portnumber".
I did test client and server on same host, it worked fine.
However when I tested them on remote host client immediately
failed after calling dbus_message_new_method_call().
It seemed connection to server was established but method call
never sent or refused by server for some reason.
Maybe I need some magic before issuing method call like
authentication or something like that?
Oh and I also getting "Using your real home directory for testing,
set DBUS_TEST_HOMEDIR to avoid" message here.
I'm not quite sure what this message is meaning...
Please help.
