Basically a procedure is executed on a remote server, transferring the control flow (including some arguments) from the client to the server until the request is executed and the result is returned. Extensions to this synchronous concept include, among others, asynchronous RPC)

A calling program uses an RPC to invoke a program running in another process. This other process may be running on the local host machine or may be on another host machine)
