I think that the answer is yes. It is supposed to happen with the code
you provided.

When the server calls (write) you should flush the port (force-output)
so data gets immediately sent to the client, if that's what you want.

For the two-way conversation, you simply need to keep on calling
(read) and (write) wherever you want in the server and/or client and
not close the socket until you are really done.
