Sorry, but the English is very confusing and even contradictory.

However I'll take a shot in the dark, based on the error message you supplied.

It looks like you are trying to access a printer across a network, that correct?

MSKB suggests that the "1722 The RPC server is unavailable " is because you are trying to view or manage services on a remote Microsoft Windows XP-based computer.

The suggested cause is that "the File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component is not turned on on the remote computer"[/i}.

Solution? turn on the File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component on the remote computer.

Other than that, we need your problem explained a little more clearly, including the environment in which this occurs (eg what type of network, Home or at Office, number of computers, type of setup, type of LAN/WAN whatever)

Oh! and what Operating Systems used, XP Home or Pro, Win 2000, 2003? whatever.

Printer Spooler Error

by ashily24dee In reply to printer spooler problem

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Hope this information helps you.
