Can someone provide me with a detail note or a link to explain the clear difference between between RA and DCOM.
I know DCOM is just a model and blah, blah.... It is one step ahead of COM. 2 or more applications on separate machines can talk to another using this concept....
I need some a more practical answer

Hi,

  DCOM is a pretty large topic to tackle in this little text box.  DCOM is:
"simply a high-level network protocol designed to enable COM-based components to interoperate accross a network."

They probably explain it better than me. Lots of luck,
