Can a service, running as NetworkService, access a remote Named Pipe?

Can a service, running as the NetworkService, access a named pipe on a
remote server that was created Everyone having Read/Write access (or
with security descriptor = SDDL_NETWORK_SERVICE)?

Is there any way to do this WITHOUT add the pipe to the
"NullSessionPipes" registry key on the server? (I think,
NullSessionPipes are unsecure.)

My client and the remote named pipe server are running on 2 XP
workstations. The 2 workstations are not members of a domain.

Thank you for your helps,
