Let us say there is a certain router network with router R.m connected to router R.n. Now say the connection is such that R.n has a listener and R.m has a connector to that listener. Now is there going to be any difference in the interaction behavior vis a vis filtering (or anything else) if:
1. The listener was on R.m and the connector on R.n,
2. Both have listeners and connectors pointing to each other's listeners.

Please explain in detail as the documentation does not do full justice to this issue.

Listeners/connectors are only the end points to establish the connection. It does not influence other behavior.

You cannot have a listener/connector on both sides, pointing to each other. One side has a listener, the other a connector, otherwise, once a connection is established, the other connector will get exceptions during connect, because the routers are already connected. Thus, you can only have a single routing connection between a router pair, not multiple.
