NT4.0 workstation. SP6.
HP LJ4 on LPT1. Was working.
Suddenly there is no printer.
Went into printer setup and found no local printers. Clicked on AddPrinter and receive this pop-up box:
"Operation could not be completed. The RPC server is unavailable."
RPC Service, Server Service, Workstation Service, all automatic and started. RPC Locator Service is on manual and not started.
I suspect that if I do an NT repair and a re-apply SP6 (or maybe even re-apply SP6 without the repair) the problem will be fixed.
But I want more than that. I would like to understand what is broken.
Does anybody know what is going on here?
