RPC Server not avaiable

I loaded hyena v8.1 to pull reports, but I keep getting RPC server not available. I have checked my services and the correct ones seems to be working. Any clues as why? I am logged in the domain controller and trying to hit my local computer (windows 7).

I am on the same subnet as the serveer. Would the filewall come in to play than?  We are running an anti-virus software but I tried to go to a box that did not have it install and still could not reach it. DNS we have had some problems with that so I will put in the FQN and see it that helps.

RPC could indicate a network issue, any firewalls or possible port blockages.  A network trace can also help you here.


George KhairallahCommented:
Usually RPC errors are due to DNS configuration or firewall blocking some ports, or some services not running.
YOu said you're connecting to your Windows 7 machine, so I would make sure that your firewall is allowing whatever traffic is needed for Hyena. I would assume, File and Print Sharing perhaps. Also, make sure that the "Server" Service is enabled on both the server and the client.

Glad you're on the right path to resolution.
