What Is Troubleshooting RPC Server Unavailable Error In Windows?

RPC stands for remote procedure call, and it is a procedure call between the server and the client. The commands given by the client to the remote server are being served under the RPC. It is not a dangerous issue for your system that you should be worried about.

It can happen due to the lack of poor internet connection since the RPC server uses the network to work. It can also happen due to the different applications running in the background which could block the functioning of RPC due to the traffic causes. There could also be a wrong IP address issue.

It can be resolved in several ways such as-
1.) Click Start > Control panel > system and security tabs.

 

2.) Click on allow on app option under the Windows firewall tab and a pop-up dialog box will appear. Check whether the Remote assistant services are open or not.

3.) Manage the applications as private or public to avoid the traffic issues and check your internet connection properly.

If your system encounters this error again, then you need to check your related IP address and the internet connection.

The full error reads:

“The RPC server is unavailable”

If you receive this error on your computer, it means Windows is having a problem communicating with other devices or machines via the network you are using. To fix the problem, you need to check if the required services are running. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type the following command and then hit Enter:

services.msc

In “Services” window, scroll down and locate the following services:

  • DCOM Server Process Launcher
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • RPC Endpoint Mapper

Make sure their status is “Running” or “Started” and their startup is set to “Automatic.” If there is one that is not running, double-click the service and start the service manually. Next, set the startup to “Automatic” then click “OK.” If this doesn’t work, it is recommended to reinstall your operating system. If this is not the problem, next to check is the firewall.

Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type the following command and then hit Enter:

control

In the Control Panel, locate “Windows Firewall” then click “Allow an app through Windows Firewall” just beneath “Windows Firewall.” Scroll down and locate “Remote Assistance.” Make sure all three (3) boxes are checked: Domain, Private, and Public. If this doesn’t help, next to check is your network connection. Press the Windows key + R then type the following command and then hit Enter:

ncpa.cpl

On the next screen, right-click the network you are using then select “Properties.” In the properties window, make sure the following are checked:

  • File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
  • Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)

In my computer, “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)” is unchecked because I disabled it intentionally but everything is working fine. So, I guess, this setting is optional. Try also to uninstall and reinstall your network adapter’s driver.
