This is not automatic.  You must use the server API to make one of your
applications the server and then you can connect using
dbus_connection_open API, and pointing it to the server address.
Alternately you can open up and manage a direct socket communication and
serialize and deserialize messages at each end though you lose the
future advantages of transparent transports (i.e. ssh forwarding).
