[python-win32] Calling (D)COM Server from another PC

this question might be foolish, but after quite some search I could not find
how to make use of DCOM with the current win32com package.
I tested out the DispatchEx which takes as its second parameter a 'machine',
probably either the hostname or the IP. I tried to invoke methods of the
Internet Explorer on other PCs in the network, and actually it worked (no
exception thrown), but on the target machine no changes could be seen
(IE.Visible=1 would make a IE Window visible but it didn't do anything on
the other pc).
So does someone of you know how to make use of DCOM, ie calling COM or OLE
objects on other PCs.
Thanks in advance.
