RPC Server is unavailable

By anggwaponi ·
is RPC Server only a feature or one (1) of the function in Windows 2000, 2003 and 2008?

likewise, how is RPC Server being manage ... does it function to blocked IP(s) in doing some network activities by disabling network commands using in the command prompt?

in my own experience, i try to issue(d) some "netsh" command in the command prompt but it shows result as 'RPC Server is unavailable'.

is RPC server 1-way of limiting or prohibiting client PC or remote user?

by the way, my local PC has an OS of Windows XP.

RPC server is unavailable

by anggwaponi In reply to Local machine service

i followed the instruction u said but looks like the Startup Type is already set to Automatic.

besides, the Path to Executable state "C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k rpcss" ... what does it means?

likewise, the Service Status shows Started. but i can't click on the following option: "Start", "Stop", "Pause", "Resume". why is these so ... is it being disable by the Administrator or the Server side or i can also enable it locally in my PC??

hoping u can or any expert from here can also contribute.
