It turns out there was:

I guess I'll wait and see.  I only have the one copy of XP, and don't
want to buy another one just to test thing, or figure out if I can
temporarily install the copy I have on another machine.  Guess I skip
the PSK testing phase and go straight to certificates with a fresh Win
2000 box.

Yes, it sounded really bad from a security perspective, but when you
search for "error 1722" and "RPC server is unavailable", the pages you
get back tend to recommend some resource tweaks and making sure that
File and Print Sharing is enabled.
