    Public folder sharing

    From today I can't share the public folder in windows vista.
    I receive a message " server RPC not available ".
    RPC is active in services.
    Anyone know why?

    That could be firewall issue. If turn off the firewall and other security
    software, can you do it?

    Firewall and other security turned off or turned on is the same.
    I found that RPC,like others services needs, DCOM Server Process to function
    properly but I don't know what to do and how to see if it DCOM
    is properly installed.

    Correct. The RPC depends on DCOM Server Process. Is the DCOM Server Process
    running?
