Communication with Addin

I'm trying to build an addin for PowerPoint that can receive commands from another application.

What do I need to do in the calling application to be able to call a method in the addin? references? COM calls?

What do I need to do in the addin to expose certain methods that I want to call?

I'm basically unsure how to wire up the communication. I've setup my addin project with the custom shim as I thought that was necessary to the process but I'm not sure.

Thanks again,
