You have several alternatives.

If you have D3 Client/Server I suggest using OLEnterprise.  This product allows you to configure COM objects throughout your network using a simple "Export Object/Import Object" paradigm.  I've found it easier than DCOM to configure and it runs on NT 3.51 as well as all Win95 flavors.  Not only that, it runs unchanged with OLE Automation servers (which must be out-of-process EXEs or DLL surrogates).

Otherwise, depending on your product you could explicitly build an n-tier COM using the Remote Client (and related) classes provided by D3.

Third, and most restrictive alternative, is use MS DCOM, DCOMCFG.EXE, etc.
