Got eMail asking what ORPC is...
"The term object remote procedure call (ORPC) identifies those technologies (protocols, API, and so on) that let you create objects on remote computers and invoke methods on them. The .NET Framework offers three distinct ORPC technologies whose functionalities partially overlap, at least at first sight. In this tip, I'll illustrate what these three options are about.
Version 1.1 of the .NET Framework offers three different technologies to invoke methods on remote objects:
- DCOM, Enterprise Services' default remote communication protocol
- .NET Remoting
- Web services (SOAP) "
