PowerShell Remoting

First of all Powershell Remoting must be enabled on the machine you are going to manage. The command ‘Enable-PSRemoting -Force’ starts the WinRM service, changes its startup mode to automatic and creates a firewall-rule that allows incoming connections.

You can test the connection by entering the following Powershell command from an remote computer:
Test-WsMan

The result should look something like in the following example:
PS C:UsersTestUser> Test-WsMan TESTCOMPUTER

wsmid : http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wsman/identity/1/wsmanidentity.xsd
ProtocolVersion : http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wsman/1/wsman.xsd
ProductVendor : Microsoft Corporation
ProductVersion : OS: 0.0.0 SP: 0.0 Stack: 3.0

To create a remote session, enter the following command:
Enter-PSSession -Computername -Credential <domainusername>
