I"ve installed Msdn basic example for DCOM, simple.
and tried to run it.
when the server was on the same machine there was no problem. but when the server was on a different machine i got an error code that meant ( through format message ) "Access is Denied".
this is the calling code
  hr = CoCreateInstanceEx(CLSID_SimpleObject, NULL, CLSCTX_SERVER, pcsi, 1, &mq);
psci contains only the server name and all the other entrances are Null.
i suspect it has to do something with the NT security configuration.

You'll have to run dcomcnfg.exe on the remote server and change the security settings for the DCOM object you're using so that the client maching (and the user you're logged on on the client machine) are allowed to access this particular object on the server. If you're using a domain controller, the DC's user database is queried, if not, make sure that the same account (both user name and password) you're using on the client is also present on the server...
