Routing Services on the RunTime

I am rather new to the routing in ArcGIS so hopefully I can get some help here.

I understand from the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF sample for Network routing that a RouteTask requires a URL from a server and one of the product from ArcGIS is the ArcGIS Server Manager. So in order to have my own routing service, I will need a ArcGIS Server Manager setup in my network, right?

Therefore, if my PC clients do not have a constant online connection but require routing service, I will need to set up the ArcGIS Server Manager on the network, if not on each computer, to provide the routing service?

Finally, is there some other way in the Runtime for WPF for routing without the use of a server or a online connection?

Thanks in advance for the help.
