My computer is Windows 7 and has powershell running, I'd like to execute commands to pull back information (specifically netstat) from a bunch of other ...
On the machines that dont have Powershell you can open dos and run:
and answer: y , y to the two questions
this does the same thing as if you were to run Enable-PSRemoting from powershell. I was under the impression that you had to have powershell on both computers but I have been experimenting and I am not sure that that is true.
Enable-PSRemoting cmdlet does more than "winrm quickconfig". The Set-WSManQuickConfig cmdlet is similar to "winrm quickconfig". As you can see from this excerpt taken from Enable-PSRemoting help topic, Set-WSManQuickConfig runs behind the scenes when you execute Enable-PSRemoting:
The Enable-PSRemoting cmdlet performs the following operations:
-- Runs the Set-WSManQuickConfig cmdlet, which performs the following tasks:
----- Starts the WinRM service.
----- Sets the startup type on the WinRM service to Automatic.
----- Creates a listener to accept requests on any IP address.
----- Enables a firewall exception for WS-Management communications.
-- Enables all registered Windows PowerShell session configurations to receive instructions from a remote computer.
----- Registers the "Microsoft.PowerShell" session configuration, if it is not already registered.
----- Registers the "Microsoft.PowerShell32" session configuration on 64-bit computers, if it is not already registered.
----- Removes the "Deny Everyone" setting from the security descriptor for all the registered session configurations.
----- Restarts the WinRM service to make the preceding changes effective.
