Running a node on one computer with a link to another computer running the ROS master

Hi all,

I'm curious if anyone has attempted to run a ROS node on one computer, and have it pass messages through some form of link to another computer that runs the master. Pretty much what the ROS arduino packages do, but with a computer in place of the raspberry pi.

I've only dabbled in ROS so forgive me if this is a question with an obvious answer.

Having just got a neat little SPI screen for my raspberry pi 2, i'm keen to play with some ROS stuff with it, but as i'm sure you're all aware, getting ROS to run Raspbian is an absolute nightmare. I can't use the screen with Arm Ubuntu since as though it requires a custom kernel.

Food for thought.
