    WMI remote gives 'RPC Unavailable'

    Hi,

    Here's the setup of my prpblem:

    I'm working an a machine that is not in the domain, running Windows
    XP.

    I'm trying to access a machine in the domain, running Windows Vista
    Business.

    When I run

    get-wmiobject win32_service -credential domain\user -computer vistapc

    the following error is returned:

    Get-WmiObject : The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from
    HRESULT: 0x800706BA)
    At line:1 char:14
    + get-wmiobject <<<< win32_service -credential domain\user -computer
    vistapc

    When I run this againt a Windows 2000 server in the same domain, I do
    get results.

    I already checked if the WMI service is running on VistaPC, and it is.

    What am I missing here?

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Out of the box on my Vista Biz install, the Windows firewall will block
    remote WMI calls.

    Duh. That's it.

    Note to self: 1. Boot machine 2. Get coffee 3. Start work.
    In-that-order!

    :-)

    Tnx!

    Cheers, Rick
