Unless you have a terminal server attached to the console port, remote access is done through vty not through console.

Depends on what or how you're doing "remote access". For example, out-of-band might have a modem connected to the console port to allow "remote access". In that case, yes you're using the console. Or, "remote access" might be using in-band telnet access. In this case, no you're not using the console (you would be using vty).
