A local computer is the machine you are currently logged into, a remote computer is a computer you are accessing from your local computer.

So, if I connect to my home computer from work, my home computer is the remote computer, and my work computer is the local.

Conversely, if I connect to my work computer from home, my work computer is the remote computer, and my home computer is the local.
