Using a local install of Calibre as a client for a server

Is there any way to use a local install of Calibre on my laptop to connect to the instance of Calibre running on my desktop?

I want to be able to have the desktop do the heavy lifting of importing and converting ebooks. Don't know if it's possible or not

If I use the content server how do I put books on my reader that isn't attached to the machine running the content server?

download them directly from the content server onto your device. Most devices have internet access these days.
