I've been experimenting with the .NET Framework RealProxy class, seeing if it can be used to generate transparent proxies which can be used in XML-RPC clients. I've posted some sample code on the XMLRPCNET Yahoo group. I have to admit that I've not really learnt much about .NET remoting yet. This is the one topic I thought was missing from the Intensive .NET course last week. An extra day devoted to remoting would have been very useful. I've since order Ingo Rammer's book Advanced .NET Remoting. Based on this description the book sounds interesting.
