Thanks Ara,
If I understand correctly, the methods are run on the server, so what
I want are servers (one on each CPU) and one client that connects to
these servers to dish out the work. Is that correct?

I understand drb uses TCP/IP. Can I leave the connections open once
established?

Another important question: How do I get the data transferred? Is
there a way to share data? 

Regards, Ben
