How to Start/Stop Windows Remote Management (WS-Management)

Service name: WinRM

Display name: Windows Remote Management (WS-Management)


Description:

Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service implements the WS-Management protocol for remote management. WS-Management
is a standard web services protocol used for remote software and hardware management. The WinRM service listens on the network for
WS-Management requests and processes them. The 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 IIS but is preconfigured to share a port with IIS on the same machine.  The WinRM service reserves the /wsman URL prefix. To prevent conflicts with IIS,
administrators should ensure that any websites hosted on IIS do not use the /wsman URL prefix.
