1 solution

Yes it is possible. Try to read this article on building a basic .NET remoting. Building a Basic .NET Remoting Application

Sample Project
1. Client(Console project).
a. Client.config
HTML
<configuration>
  <system.runtime.remoting>
    <application>
      <client>
        <wellknown
            type="HelloWorld, Host"
           url="http://localhost:8989/HelloWorld.rem"
            />
      </client>
    </application>
  </system.runtime.remoting>
</configuration>

b. this piece of code.
C#
RemotingConfiguration.Configure("Client.config");
IHelloWorld objRemote = Activator.GetObject(typeof(IHelloWorld), "http://localhost:8989/HelloWorld.rem") as IHelloWorld;
Console.WriteLine(objRemote.GetString("Print : "));

2. Contract project(Class Library project)
a. IHelloWorld interface

C#
public interface IHelloWorld
    {
        string GetString(string message);
    }


3. Host(Windows service)
a. HelloWorld class
C#
public class HelloWorld : MarshalByRefObject, IHelloWorld
    {
        public string GetString(string message)
        {
            return string.Concat(message, " Hello world");
        }

        public string GetDate()
        {
            return DateTime.Now.ToString();
        }
    }

b. Host.config
HTML
<configuration>
  <system.runtime.remoting>
    <application>
      <service>
        <wellknown
           mode="Singleton"
           type="Host.HelloWorld, Host"
           objectUri="HelloWorld.rem"
            />
      </service>
      <channels>
        <channel ref="http" port="8989"/>
      </channels>
    </application>
  </system.runtime.remoting>
</configuration>

c. Service1 class
C#
public partial class Service1 : ServiceBase
    {
        public Service1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
        {
            HostObject();
        }

        protected override void OnStop()
        {
        }

        internal void HostObject()
        {
            RemotingConfiguration.Configure("Host.config");
        }
    }

make sure they are running on the same machine. the host should be running first. and then the client.

Yaw but i'am not able to start the service. It's showing that "Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do". What should i do now???
