The RPC server is unavailable
Posted on 2001-09-18
For some time I have been developing a website on my own machine (NT40 Workstation with PWS) using Visual InterDev with no problems. Yesterday we got our "official" web server up and running so I moved the website to that server and configured my project's Working Mode to Local for continuing development.
Now whenever I open InterDev and Start the website, I get the error, "The RPC server is unavailable." The only way to correct the problem is to stop IIS and restart the relevant services (IIS, WWW Publishing Service). Then I'm able to Start the website successfully one time, after which I get the error again. Clearly this is not a good development procedure--I need to be able to edit and debug randomly throughout the day without shutting down IIS on my machine between every edit.
I have searched the MS KB and Google for a solution but nothing suggested there is relevant to my situation.
Thanks for your responses.
