I know that between 2 linux boxes you can run applications that are installed on one machine from another. $>./someapp &
how are resources(memory) handled during the session? I would think that the app running box would do all the work and the remote machine is just 'viewing'.
can anyone elaborate here? is there a way to have the local machine do the work?(assuming my assumption above)

Yeap, that's correct.
Why there is a need for local machine to do the work?? I mean, the idea is because you have less powerful machine as client ( usaully a desktop ) and much more powerful machine as server ( usually mid to high-end servers ). If you need to run applications locally, just install a copy of it. If you want to load balance, then look into having cluster or something. Other than that, I don't see why you want to run applications using local resources and having codes locate remotely. There are some ASPs doing exactly what you wanting to do a few years back but never took off due to that having multiple copy of software is much more easier than downloading the application codes every time you use it.is there a way to have the local machine do the work?(assuming my assumption above)
Just my opinion ....
