You have to use web services to do it remotely. Any application accessing
the sharepoint  assemblies will fail out if SharePoint isn't installed

The web services only provide a subset of functionality and don't provide a
lot in the way of admin  functions.

You could consider writing your own Web Service to implement the
functionality that you want to remote.
