Do you say that we cannot use localhost:alias_name in Remote Desktop for
anything ? What the problem to use it ?

I have a client that uses a mix of lan users and some in others branch
use it via Terminal Services, the connection string for the remote users
are localhost:my_database.

I have used for some months without any trouble.

I thought Remote Desktops doesn't allow local (IPC) connections but
connections trough TCP/IP looppack interface hasn't any problem.

What the risc to use it ?

see you !
