the safest mode to enable remote access (RPC) on LAN

Hello!

 

I would like to know what is the safest mode to enable the RPC?

My solution is: I made a new general rule in the Smart Firewall right above the rule "Deafult Block EPMAP" with the following settings:

allow connection from other computers (I listed the computers' IP addresses, there are two PCs)

the port is "local EPMAP (135)" and UDP+TCP.

I also checked the "Create a Security History log entry" option.

Is there any safer setting to accomplish this task?

 

Thanks

Without adding the rule, does it not work by simply giving the other computers full trust in the Network Security Map?

Thanks for your reply!

I applied your solution (full trust) and it works fine, so I deleted my general rule.
