Hi!
I have this problem:
I have a LAN with 2 computers, both have internet connection, works smooth.
I have problems when I tested the /tasklist command from one to another. It
gave me the error: "ERROR: The RPC server is unavailable.". I checked the
IPs, are working, I can ping the other computer from mine, I checked the
service RPC, is started. DNS are the same for both, time zones too. What is
the problem please?

It could be the firewall issue. This search result may help.

Remote Management IssuesFor the RPC server is unavailable error, add TCP
port 135 to the firewall. 6. If the remote computer is windows server 2003,
you may need to add vdsldr.exe ...

I tried it. Now it asks me for a password ( I have no password set for my
computer or the other one though).
I set password for both, didn't work.
What pass shall I type?

PS: I user on cmd prompt tasklist /s IP.

Thanks,
Danny

:(
same thing: "ERROR: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password."

Both computers have now same username, same password... really weird ...

What do you think I can try more?
