In addition to SOAP and RPC, you could always use CORBA to run the object on the other machine. Check out the ORB package for more details. Given the complexity of CORBA, I would tend to avoid it unless it's a company standard or you have CORBA resources in house.

    I've had good success with the COPE language binding, however you'll still need an ORB to go with it, for instance ORBacus, which is free for non-commercial use, but requires a license for use in a business. I'd say use CORBA if you require a significant amount of interaction with the remote object. That is, if you're doing more than just firing it up and letting it go. CORBA is much too heavyweight otherwise.
