Chapter 20. Sessions: remote control with less work

In chapter 13, we introduced you to PowerShell’s remoting features. In that chapter, you used two primary cmdlets—Invoke-Command and Enter-PSSession—to access both one-to-many and one-to-one remote control. Those two cmdlets work by creating a new remoting connection, doing whatever work you specify, and then closing that connection.

There’s nothing wrong with that approach, but it can be tiring to have to continually specify computer names, credentials, alternative port numbers, and so on.
