RPC/WWW server capabilities?

As far as I realized by reading this
correspondence (still you have to convince me,
I’m not yet a MATLAB user), MATLAB for Windows
has built-in DDE server (and client, too?)

(1) Does the UNIX version have similar RPC
(= Remote Procedure Call) built-in

(I.e., that it can be used as a server in the
background (accessible through the network),
while another appropriate program(s) can be
used as a suitable user-friendly application's
front-end? This can be specially nice because
it would not be limited to UNIX RPC clients
only, WinSock + third party products enable
RPC clients to be written and to communicate
with the RPC server from Windows side, too.)

(2) Or (another scenario) is it possible to use
MATLAB on UNIX or NT box somehow as a Web
server (stand-alone or together with generic Web
server deamon), so that INTRANET users can
simultaneously run our own MATLAB application
by using Netscape Navigator (sorry, I hate
those 'explorers') as a front-end?

(It is understood that in this case a couple of
HTML documents and CGI scripts would be
required for smooth I/O formatting.)

(3) Then, if it really works (either of above),
what about the number of licenses? Precisely,
is ONE MATLAB server (i.e., one license) enough
to serve a couple of RPC/WWW intranet clients

Thank you. All answers, suggestions, comments,
ideas, experience... are welcome.
