Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is the glue that holds together MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, and Windows NT. It is a client-server technology -- a way of making programs on two different systems work together like one. The advantage of RPC over other distributing programming techniques is that you can link two systems together using simple C calls, as in a single-system program.
The Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is used by system administrators everyday to log onto remote Windows machines. Perhaps most commonly, it is used to perform administrative tasks on critical servers such as the domain controller with highly privileged accounts, whose credentials are transmitted via RDP. It is thus vital to use a secure RDP configuration.
