    I think the problem is on client side. When the pipe is not created on server side the error is different:
    Code:
    C:\Temp\named_pipe_in_service>pc.exe 192.168.55.236
    Could not open pipe (2)
    
    C:\Temp\named_pipe_in_service>net helpmsg 2
    
    The system cannot find the file specified.
    In your case this is a network path not found, which most probably means the client side is not able to resolve host name to IP address.

    Code:
    C:\Temp\named_pipe_in_service>pc.exe ivartanov-bla-bla
    Could not open pipe (53)
    
    C:\Temp\named_pipe_in_service>net helpmsg 53
    
    The network path was not found.
    Best regards,
    Igor
