Calling a method in two different applications via DDP?

I have two separate applications that perform different things, however I need to sync them somehow on a server to server level. I looked in EventDDP and Cluster however that’s all overkill for me.

How would I solve this with just the board utilities right now?

App1 defines a method called “sync” on the server side.
App2 creates a connection to App1 via DDP.connect and calls the function - also on the server side

So this is what I have:

App 1: server.js

 sync: function(message) {

App 2: server.js

var remote = DDP.connect("");"sync", "Test Message");

Also does the current Meteor hosting environment allows this (**** via the deploy command)?
