Description:
Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service implements the WS-Management protocol for remote
management.WS-Management is a standart web services protocol used for remote software and hardware
management.The WinRM service listens on the network for WS-Management requests and processes them.
Thw WinRM Service needs to be configured with a listener using winrm.cmd command line tool or through
Group Policy in order for it to listen over the network. The WinRM Service provides access to WMI data and
enables event collection. Event collection and subscription to events require that the service is running.
WinRM messages use HTTP and HTTPS as transports. The WinRM Service does not depend on ISS but is
preconfigured to share a port with ISS on the same machine. The WinRM service reserves the /wsman URL
prefix. To prevent conflicts with ISS, administrators should ensure that any wesites hosted on ISS do not use
the /wsman URL prefix
