Does the client need to be in the same version than the server?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to set up a multiplayer game on my own server.
I can install from the debian repo the freeciv server in the version 2.5.11 or 2.5.6.
Some of the players can install 2.5.11 and some others can only install 2.5.6.
Which version version should I prefer for the server?
Can 2.5.6 clients play without problems on a 2.5.11 server?

I think servers and clients of the same major version (2.5) should be compatible regardless of the minor version (.6 or .11).
