messenger service...

Hmmm...  It looks as though we are talking about two different types of 
messenger service (which is not surprising in the Windows world).  The 
error message you are reporting is a DCE/RPC error message, which means 
that you're using RPC for this connection (port 135, perhaps?).  I'm 
digging into the older Messenger Service system.  Very different.

Sorry for the confusion.

I *believe* that the error message you report means that the RPC service 
you are requesting isn't supported on the other end.  That is, the service 
was either disabled or never installed, or possibly that it is being 
blocked by a firewall or somesuch.

Does this work against some systems and not others?  Which ones fail?
