Is it possible to replicate only some objects under a branch of directory tree based on a filter?

See the "filter" parameter to syncrepl in Admin Guide <http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin22/syncrepl.html>.

Thanks, I didn't know this stuff existed. By reading it, it seems that it is always the slave server contacting the master server, even if pushing is used for replication. Is this correct?

Since master and slave servers in my installation will be separated with firewall, I'd really like to punch only one-way holes master->slave for replication if at all possible. Basically, this was the main reason for setting up the slave server in that segment of network, to not have any connectivity from slave's network segment to master's network segment (only the other way around).

Is there a way to configure master server for syncrepl so that it always connects and pushes the changes to predefined list of slaves (instead of waiting for slaves to ask for information to be pushed)?
