I have a SQL 2000 and a SQL 6.5 server that need to be able to issue RPCs to each other.

I have followed the following steps on each:
1)Create a suitable SQL login for all remote logins to use
2)Added the other server under Client Network utility (using Named Pipes)
3)Added the other server as a remote server and configured SQL to map all remote logins to newly created one above.

Now, I'm trying to test RPC connectivity by enterring XXX...sp_who only I get an error informing that the server isn't configured for remote logins, even though it clearly is!!!

If both SQL Server machines run on Windows NT/2000 then here is tested scenario. Let me present step by step how to follow it.
Make both servers run under the same windows domain account security context by editing logon account credentials in the Services applet, change sa passwords to be identical on both machines, run on both servers

execute sp_addlinkedserver '<remote_server_name>'
--and
execute sp_addremotelogin '<remote_server_name>', 'sa', 'sa'

, logon on the machine where either SQL Server is running locally with windows account used to run SQL Server, logon on SQL Server as sa and run distributed query.
