RPC Errors/Registry Key "MaxWorkItems"/Win95 clients

Due to a high number of RPC errors on our BDC during heavy usage we edited the registry keys "MaxWorkItems" and "MaxMpxCt" to the maximum values.  This fixed the errors for all the thin clients but now the Win95 clients are unable to access the network at all.  All connections are made through an ICA server.

Any ideas?

Is DCOM installed on the WIN95 clients?

DCOM is not included in the released version of Windows 95

Tim, the errors we were receiving were "Remote Procedure Call Failed," when printing to the network printers, or accessing files on the BDC.  Hope that helps!  It's got our entire IT shop stumped... (but at least the thin clients, which make up most of our connections, are working fine now).

RPC errors like this are inicative of a flakey network connection.
Get those links checked out !
If your LAN is stretching a long way, stick in some reliable WAN links to ease the load.

Would you know the reason why these particular registry changes would cause the W95 clients to be unable to access the network?  The registry changes (made to both the BDC and ICA servers) did correct the RPC Failure errors for the Citrix and NT clients but rendered the network inaccessible to W95 clients.  I've downloaded DCOM but need more information before I proceed, for the sake of documentation.  Thanks!
