This document presents a technique for a NETCONF server to request that a NETCONF client initiates a SSH connection to the NETCONF server, a technique referred to as 'call home'. Call home is needed to support deployments where the NETCONF client is otherwise unable to initiate a SSH connection to the NETCONF server directly.
