Default The RPC server is unavailable when printing

I get this error message when trying to print to a shared printer connected to another machine, now my first thought was that she was trying to print when the other machine was off b/c of the times in which it stops working (after 5pm or early in morning). However, my boss informs me this is not the case, I am thinking maybe a firewall or sharing issue but, it may be something else. Any Ideas?

This can occur if you have only one DC (domain controller) and it does not have file and printer sharing enable on its network card.
