As you saId, there are several major components to remote services: the distribution provider (generic), the discovery provider (from what you've said, I'm not sure which one you are currently using), and the OSGi remote services implementation.
In general, having clients/consumers that are older than the server/host are more likely to be problematic...as you seem to have found. The reason for this is that the host produces meta-data about the remote service (and publishes for discovery if you are using network discovery) and this meta-data has to be understood by the consumer. And if the consumer is older than the remote service host, this can be an issue.
If you have information about what problems you are experiencing (e.g. exceptions, logging, when they occur, etc) then we may be able to find work-arounds for you. It might be better to have a technical dialog on the ecf-dev mailing list: https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ecf-dev as there is more expertise there. Also if you wish to contact me directly about providing contractual support I can be reached at slewis at composent.com.
