    3. On the Remote Connect window, select Remove Service from the File menu.
    4. Enter the hostname of the remote computer.
    5. Click OK.
    Note: If you get System Error: 1722 - RPC Server is unavailable, enable file and printer sharing on the remote computer and repeat this procedure. For additional information, see http://support.dameware.com/faq/faq.aspx?Category=103#135.
