I am trying to list all rpc commands from an Ubuntu machine on a Win 10 Pro machine:

net rpc service list -I <ip> -U username

Getting the following error:

Failed to open Service Control Manager. [WERR_ACCESS_DENIED]

All the following services are running on the target (Windows) host however:

Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

Computer Browser


Remote Registry

Windows Management Instrumentation


Remote Desktop Services

Windows Remote Management (WS-Management)

File / Printer sharing is enabled also.

Any suggestions?


You will have to allow these kind of remote calls in the UAC too.

In the PowerShell (as Administrator):

reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
