Chapter 10. PowerShell Remoting

This chapter covers

  • Outlining Remoting technologies and protocols
  • Configuring and securing Remoting endpoints
  • Exploring Remoting scenarios
  • Using implicit Remoting

Remoting was one of the major new technologies introduced in PowerShell v2 and in the broader Management Framework v2 of which PowerShell is a part. With v3, Microsoft has continued to invest in this important foundational technology.

Remoting is a complex technology, and we’ll do our best to explore it as thoroughly as possible. But some uses for Remoting are outside the purview of an administrator: Programming custom-constrained runspaces, for example, requires software development skills that are outside the scope of this book.
