I would like to call a store procedure on server A to update table on server B.

Case a) When server B's window firewall is off, store procedure runs correctly.
Case b) When server B's window firewall is set with exception on msdtc.exe, it runs correctly.

However, both cases a) and b) using DTCPING.exe shows
DTCping log file: C:\Temp\DTCPING\SRV-185140.log
RPC server is ready
Please Start Partner DTCping before pinging
++++++++++++Validating Remote Computer Name++++++++++++
Please refer to following log file for details:
Invoking RPC method on srv-10
Problem:fail to invoke remote RPC method
Error(0x6D9) at dtcping.cpp @303
-->RPC pinging exception
-->1753(There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.)
RPC test failed

Case c) I opened port 135, 1433, 1434, 5000~5050 on server B according to, I got a timeout.

Any ports I am missing on server B? or do I need to care server A? Thanks.
