Yeah, you'll want to flush both ways on the wort side. For whatever reason, I usually get more out going from the output to input. My theory is that stuff gets wedged in going forwards.
As for the "correct" side, I was referring to making sure I was flushing the wort side. With all the same size connectors, I could see myself getting in a hurry and flushing the water side.
