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.

Assuming you can run the program on the local machine and it is able to listen on an appropriate port, and the remote computer knows how to connect to the local machine, and is permitted to access by any security software and hardware, then yes.
