Doc on creating a remo repo without cloning

I'm starting to learn git-annex and tried by creating one local git-annex 
enabled repo on my laptop. Then I wanted to create another non-bare repo on my 
server to push to it.

I can not access my laptop from the server, since I'm sitting behind a NAT. 
However there are at least two hurdles when I want to create another repo 
without cloning:
- I can not push to the remote repo without setting 
      receive.denyCurrentBranch ignore
- When I do a simple git push, git tries to push the git-annex branch. However 
I understand that the git-annex branch is local to each repo and should not be 
shared? I get non-fast-forward complains on a push attempt.

Thanks for any enlightenment,

Thomas Koch,
