    Hi Team,

    Thanks for the update but how can i check which firewall port is causing the issue all of sudden. My machine is working more than 2 years its happened just a month ago for windows updates and now i couldn’t able to install INF drivers and getting remote procedure call failed.

    Is there a repair tool which will fix without reinstall the OS.

    • Yes, it’s quite possible because network team can change their setting any time without informing us. Better to do a network trace or port query to understand this. I have seen many similar issues because of Firewalls after 3-4 of the implementation.

      Or try disabling antivirus products … on server and client end

    Yeah this sounds to be firewall ports related. Anoop’s blog post is very detailed about this.


    This is typical firewall configuration error …

    RPC ports are not opened probably
