No change needed. They can work over TCP either locally or remotely.

For local, you can use either the external IP address or use (localhost)

As a side note - if you have both the server and client on the same machine, use "ncalrpc", for different machines "ncacn_ip_tcp" or "ncacn_np". The last two ones also work for a single machine, yet "ncalrpc" will be more efficiant then. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa378665%28VS.85%29.aspx ("Selecting a Protocol Sequence")
