< jow> ubus itself has no network transport
< jow> it is reachable via http://.../ubus in case uhttpd-mod-ubus is installed (not the default) or via http://.../cgi-bin/luci/admin/ubus (default)
< jow> the latter emulates uhttpd-mob-ubus in Lua code
< jow> it takes incoming http requests, parses the body json and invokes ubus via libubus

I understand this as Yes, it is available over network.
