can't see event viewer over the network

I have a network on a domain. I can't connect remotely to Windows 7 computer's event viewer. I can connect to everything else including services, registry, users and groups etc. When I try to access the event viewer  It says RPC server is Unavailable. The RPC service is running.

I can connect to a computer using Computer Management. I get everything except the event viewer.

What would prevent access to just the event viewer over the network?

I can access it on XP machines.

Hi,

Well, my windows is on Spanish so I'll try to translate to English...
On the Exception enable (something like) "Remote Administration of remote events"

Also you can check this to verify the ports that need to be open

Hi,
The RPC message that you see is the Win7 machine answer.

Please try this...
On win7 machine check that RPC and DCOM services are running on.
Be sure that you open the appropriated ports on the Firewall.
Also verify that the remote user have privileges to run RPC on Win7

-hope helps-

Dcom and rpc are running. If they weren't I would not be able to connect to services, users and computers etc. What firewall port would I open that would be blocking just event viewer?
