Hi,
I am trying to connect to a server remotely via an HP tool called Operations Orchestration and getting the following error:

exception=System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800706BA): The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

But when I use remote desktop connection application, I am successful to connect to the server.

Please help me about the error. What does it mean exactly? I have tried some solutions as a result from google search but they didnt help.

Thanx in advance

Hatice

Maybe your program use another port than usual RDP (3389), if so, the firewall server side may be blocking it and reject your HP tool connection.

From what I have been able to find with the RPC service unavailable, you need to go into the firewall and set an out/in rule for WMI then that error should stop.
