Client Push or Remote Tools Not working

I get the following System error on my SCCM 2007 server:
Event ID: 10009
Source: DCOM
Type: Error

DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer %computername% using any of the configured protocols.

I get this error whenI try to use Remote tools, or install the client using the "client Push" function.

History - I rebuilt this server from scratch after some OS issues. It had Server 2003 R2 (SP2) with SCCM 2007 installed.
It is the same now as it was - plus I installed SQL on the server before installing SCCM again, to use the same server for the database and management point. All in one.

I kept the same site code and boundaries, hoping it would work, but it does not work on any clients.

Please advise.

Run DCDIAG and netdiag both in verbose mode and look for any failures.

I hope this helps !

*Insert embarrasing moment here*
Sorry guys. We rolled out 60 odd workstations all with the firewall enabled, but with the client installed at the same time.
My apologies.

The Windows XP firewalls were enabled on the workstations when we rolled them out for our refresh project. I'd like to apologise for the inconvenience.
