You can implement a COM+ component that writes the Catalog information (which pertains to the transient subscription) on the remote computer and install a proxy on the subscriber computer. For this workaround to work, you must set the authentication level to None between the application that hosts the proxy and the server component.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service Pack 3.
