MSMQ client and server can be on separate machines?

I saw this question asked a couple of times already but the links provided are old and the information seems incomplete. What I am looking for here is to find out if I have an application that uses the MSMQ API (thereby making it an MSMQ client), and plans on connecting to an MSMQ server on a remote system; do I also need the MSMQ Server component installed on the client machine? or is the MSMQ Server only required to be installed on the Server machine and I simply point to it from my MSMQ client?

Thanks in Advance,

Of course you can have an MSMQ client and server running on different machines (that's the whole idea!).

You must, however, install MSMQ on both machines. When you configure the MSMQ on the client machine (it may differ, according to the version of winodws) you should specify the name of the MSMQ controller (the server).
