Use this interface to provide custom type information that is carried along with the ObjRef objects.

ObjRef objRefSample = RemotingServices.GetObjRefForProxy(myRemoteObject);
Console.WriteLine("***ObjRef Details***");
Console.WriteLine("URI:\t{0}", objRefSample.URI);
object[] channelData = objRefSample.ChannelInfo.ChannelData;
Console.WriteLine("Channel Info:");
foreach(object o in channelData)
    Console.WriteLine("\t{0}", o.ToString());
IEnvoyInfo envoyInfo = objRefSample.EnvoyInfo;
if (envoyInfo == null) {
    Console.WriteLine("This ObjRef does not have envoy information.");
}
else {
    IMessageSink envoySinks = envoyInfo.EnvoySinks;
    Console.WriteLine("Envoy Sink Class: {0}", envoySinks);
}
IRemotingTypeInfo typeInfo = objRefSample.TypeInfo;
Console.WriteLine("Remote type name: {0}", typeInfo.TypeName);
Console.WriteLine("Can my object cast to a Bitmap? {0}",
    typeInfo.CanCastTo(typeof(System.Drawing.Bitmap), objRefSample));
Console.WriteLine("Is this object from this AppDomain? {0}", objRefSample.IsFromThisAppDomain());
Console.WriteLine("Is this object from this process? {0}",  objRefSample.IsFromThisProcess());
