Following is my client code. The DCOM component is already registered on the server "MyServer".

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim test As Object
  Set test = CreateObject("TestDCOM.Class1", "MyServer")
  Call test.greet
End Sub

When i run the program, the system gives the gollowing error.

"Runtime Error 462 The remote server does not exist or is unavailable"

I have given all the permission to the client using dcomcnfg.

If anybody has any idea, then help me.
