Hi Jignesh,

Here is a list of high-level features for remoting in Whidbey (.NET 
Framework 2.0):

- IpcChannel - This is a same-box cross-process channel, which avoids the 
reliance on a network stack a la Tcp and Http Channels.

- Secure TcpChannel - TcpChannel now support encryption, signing and 
authentication via new underlying SSPI APIs in System.Net

- Version Tolerant Serialization - more a serialization feature but this 
allows for versioning of types without worrying about failing to 
de/serialize when communicating with older versions on the client/server.

- Generics support - Full use of generics is supported in remoting 
applications

- IPv6 support - Supports IPv6 addresses

- Connection cache control for TcpChannel - this allows the control of the 
connection cache timeout to better support load-balancing scenarios with 
the TcpChannel
