RPC System

RPC system

1. Client encodes data through XDR Filter
2. Client passes XDR encoded data across network to remote host
3. Server decodes data through XDR Filter
4. Server encodes functional call result through XDR Filter
5. Server pass XDR encoded data across network back to Client
6. Client decodes RPC result through XDR Filter and continues processing
