Is it possible to install and run Exchange Management console (for Exchange 2010) on my laptop and connect to a remote exchange server?

This would save me having to RDP into the remote exchange box (I'd just need to be on the VPN).

Edit: Vista, 7, or 2008 only. Here's a technet link:

Many thanks Hyppy, unfortunately the Exchange Management Tools require that I'm on a domain (we're running the Exchange as a standalone unit)... so I just need to join the domain and I'll be away. Thanks! – bduncanj Mar 25 '11 at 22:28
