VMconvert and error: 'semaphore timeout period'

Well, discovered an interesting issue.

When running VMConverter as the server version and P2Ving remote clients, I've run into an error:

'Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired'

Can't really find any reasoning behind this (possibly ISA blocking RPC), but if you install the converter on the local machine it seems to work just fine.

The possible reason for it could be that our VMconverter server is running on one subnet, and the client is on another subnet. ISA has two IPs, one for each subnet, but that doesn't seem to matter. We have had RPC issues going from one subnet to the other already, so this could be a viable answer.
