  • There are a huge number of ways of configuring DCOM security settings. There is no step-by-step procedure discussing each one, since it depends on the security requirements of your particular project.

    Tell us what your DCOMCNFG settings are at the moment. Are the client and server computers in the same domain?

  • Yes, the client and the server components are on the same domain. The requirements is to access a COM Server component from a remote client machine, for which i allowed local and remote access to user group named Everyone, same done for launch and activation permissions (system wide settings) and the default property is to allow distributed COM on this computer. Still the error !!!!!!
