I am getting the error: Computer \\pc.mydc.com cannot be managed. The remote network path was not found.

You are referring to the Windows Firewall?  If so, you need to open the remote administration exception as described here: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/b8057a7a-a0d3-40b5-8224-ea6a4f5e17231033.mspx
