Does ALPC Interface may be called remotely?

Sorry for not exact driver question, but I don't know the best address to ask it... :)

ALPC and RPC are very close. RPC in the case of local call (LPC) is working via ALPC.
RPC may be called remotely via LAN using IPC$.

Does ALPC Interface may be called remotely?

Thanks for answer,

PS. Probably you may advice better address for this question?

    No. The L in LPC stands for local. LPC is how RPC is implemented when both endpoints on on the same system

    RPC uses ALPC, LPC is long since deprecated and its legacy calls actually always lead to ALPC.
