  • remote admin windows firewall Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

    I am getting the following error

    The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

    I started here -

    Went here

    I have done this:

    Using the command prompt
    netsh firewall set service type = remoteadmin mode = mode
    I have also done this:

    Using Group Policy
    1.Open the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in to edit the Group Policy object (GPO) that is used to manage Windows Firewall settings in your organization.
    2.Open Computer Configuration, open Administrative Templates, open Network, open Network Connections, open Windows Firewall, and then open either Domain Profile or Standard Profile, depending on which profile you want to configure.
    3.In the details pane, double-click Windows Firewall: Allow remote administration exception.
    4.In the Windows Firewall: Allow remote administration exception properties dialog box, on the Settings tab, click Enabled or Disabled.

    I can connect to a remote registry using regedit > file > remote registry

    I can connect to admin shares \\clientname\c$ etc.

    I can remote desktop (where it is enabled on the client) using mstsc

    I can run msinfo32.exe on a local machine but cannot see any remote machines (except one vista machine where I was able to allow WMI and RPC Remote administraion through the firewall) but cannot connect to any remote xp machines

    nslookup resolves name>IP and IP>name

    lansweeper canít see any clients

    msinfo32 will not connect to any remote machines

    It all works if I disable the firewall!

    LanSweeper connection tester reports the RPC error above.

    Clients = XP SP2 or SP3
    Server = SBS 2003 R2 Premium (strict RPC compliance disabled in ISA)
