If you don't care about the communication internals, (and it seems very
likely that you don't), try Pyro :

Pyro makes it VERY easy to build distributed object systems in Python.
(a basic client and server take no more than 5 to 10 lines of code,
of which only two or three are Pyro-specific).

If you know DCOM, you know the basics of distributed object systems,
and you should feel at home very soon when using Pyro.
Not forgetting that it is tremendously easier to use than DCOM.. ;-)
