Enabling and Disabling PowerShell Remoting

by Oct 17, 2014

PowerShell 3 and later

If you want to access a computer remotely via PowerShell, then on the destination side (on the computer you want to visit), run this line of code with Administrator privileges:

PS> Enable-PSRemoting -SkipNetworkProfileCheck -Force  

Once you did, you can now visit this computer from another box – provided you have local Administrator privileges on the target machine, you do specify the computer name and not its IP address, and both computers are joined in the same domain.

To connect interactively, use this line:

PS> Enter-PSSession -ComputerName targetComputerName 

To run code remotely, try this:

PS> Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock { Get-Service } -ComputerName targetComputerName
