Problem: I have a PC that has to connect to a server through a modem for security reasons. While it is connected to the modem, a screen needs to be printed. The printer that is being used is connected to the local network. While connected to the modem, attempting to print gives the error "The RPC server is unavailable." System: Windows XP Professional SP3 Printer server is Windows Server 2008 Modem is old 56k modem connected by serial port (don't think that matters) What I've tried: I have tried modifying the routing table to force connections to the subnet that the computer and printer are hosted on. route -p add 10.1.0.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.1.61.0 METRIC 40 IF 0x2 ip for the PC is 10.1.61.53, ip for the printer is 10.1.61.22, IF 0x2 is the integrated NIC The RPC service is running, and I have also started the RPC locator Any suggestions what I should do next?
