I think I've had to enable RPC to get DTC to work, in similar situations. It was a few years ago, so I don't remember all the details, but it was something like that.
The other option, in some cases, is to move the update on the remote server outside the transaction. Often, that's not an option, in order to keep the databases consistent, but sometimes it can be used.
