Windows print clients might encounter the following errors when connecting to a remote printer shared on a Windows print server:

0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT)

0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL)

0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME)

Note: The printer connection issues described in this issue are specific to print servers and are not commonly observed in devices designed for home use. Printing environments affected by this issue are more commonly found in enterprises and organizations.

Workaround: You can take steps to workaround this issue on print servers that meet the following prerequisite:

Print clients must have installed a Windows update released on or after January 2021 before the print server has installed .

Ensure that network security and VPN solutions allow print clients to establish RPC over TCP connections to print server over the following port range:

Default start port: 49152

Default end port: 65535

Port Range: 16384 ports

Please refer to these articles for further guidance:

How to configure RPC to use certain ports and how to help secure those ports by using IPsec.

The default dynamic port range for TCP/IP has changed since Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008

You also benefit from using client side rendering for print jobs. The ‘Render print jobs on client computers’ option is available from the printer’s device Properties, and it is recommended that its checkbox is selected on the print server. Note this step will not help if clients have overwrites which prevent the server setting from taking effect.
