 for Remote Procedure Call
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Remote Procedure Call
      (RPC) A protocol which allows a
     program running on one host to cause code to be executed on
     another host without the programmer needing to explicitly code
     for this.  RPC is an easy and popular paradigm for
     implementing the client-server model of distributed
     computing.  An RPC is initiated by the caller (client)
     sending request message to a remote system (the server) to
     execute a certain procedure using arguments supplied.  A
     result message is returned to the caller.  There are many
     variations and subtleties in various implementations,
     resulting in a variety of different (incompatible) RPC
     Sun RPC is defined in RFC 1057 and ONC RPC in RFC
