Hi,
I get "the RPC server is unavailable" message on a lot of my devices I scan that are Windows machines. How can I fix this?

The RPC (Remote Procedure Call) server error appears when some of the RPC-related services are not functioning properly. This is not caused by network scanning per se. It is usually related to disabled file or printer sharing, network connection interruptions, RPC-requested traffic being blocked by the firewall, or corrupted registry files.

Here a quick overview of what can be wrong and how it can be fixed: Fixing "The RPC Server is Unavailable" error in Windows.

If that doesn't help, Microsoft provides a detailed troubleshooting guide: Windows Server Troubleshooting: "The RPC Server is Unavailable".
