Will try my best to not give too technical an answer.

So An RPC (Remote Procedure Call) basically lets you call a remote function stub of any connected peer/s

# example

#pc 1

remote func foo():

rset() however changes the member value of any connected peer node

# pc 1
extends Node

remote var bar = 1

# pc 2
rset("bar", 8)

And rset_config() is a helper function for rset() as by default you are not allowed to make RPC/RSET calls to un-awaiting peers.

# if remote keyword is not used on pc 1 above
func _ready():
    rset_config("bar", RPCMode.RPC_MODE_REMOTE)
