Preferred Solution: Windows Remote Management (WS-Management)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I managed to get winrm to work on my local network but when I try to go through the WAN using either my IP address or my DNS address it fails. I have ports 5895-5896 forwarded and I can get to the "enter password" prompt for both HTTP & HTTPS but after typing it in I get this for HTTP
"Winrs error:The WinRM client cannot process the request. If the authentication scheme is different from Kerberos, or if the client computer is not joined to a domain, then HTTPS transport must be used or the destination machine must be added to the TrustedHosts configuration setting. Use winrm.cmd to configure TrustedHosts. Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated. You can get more information about that by running the following command: winrm help config."

and this for HTTPS "Winrs error:The WinRM client cannot complete the operation within the time specified. Check if the machine name is valid and is reachable over the network and firewall exception for Windows Remote Management service is enabled."

Has anyone else ran into this and have any suggestions?

Hello everyone,
This is my first post, so I'm not sure if this is the right category.
I am a IT student and use Hyper-V on my laptop and desktop, I would like to remote manage the virtual machines so I can easily use my
laptop vm's.
I've tried a lot of tutorials, but none seem to be working. This is the error I get all the time:
"An error occurred while attempting to connect to server Check that
the virtual machine management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server"

I use both my desktop and laptop in a workgroup enviroment and have them connected over LAN. My desktop being (DAVID-DESKTOP)
and  my laptop (DAVID-LAPTOP)

I have added my desktop to TrustedHosts and vice versa if that is needed I have the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Machine Management service running on the laptop I have cmdkey from my laptop in my desktop, is that correct? I have added both the IP and hostname,
it didn't work either way.I have disabled the firewall on my laptop and desktop while testing this
I am not yet allowed to insert links/images, so they will come soon (I hope)
So with having tried all the above options, what am I doing wrong?

Have a Dell Dimension 4600 - Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 - 512MB Memory - 60Gig Hardrive.

Recently had the virtumonde virus on my computer. Have tried several things to remove. Thought I had gotten rid of it, but now my computer is doing several odd things.

Cannot remove any programs, cannot start services, i.e. RPC getting error trying to start "service did not start due to logon failure", same with WMI.

Did a XP repair install and everything seemed OK, these services were starting and everything running OK.

Then did the update for XP2, and having same problems again.

Tried uninstalling SP2, and it gives me an error....the system cannot find the file specified.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Error 1068 1069 Remote Procedure Call And Windows Management Instrumentation

Are you 100% certain that the virus is gone? If it isn't, then all the fixing in the world won't make it right.

Tha being said (and assuming that the virus is gone), did you update your drivers to ensure that they were SP2 compatible BEFORE installing SP2? The two most common reasons for SP2 failing are 1) viruses, and 2) outdated drivers.

Other than that, I'd have to suggest backing up your data and reinstalling Windows from scratch with your Dell system recovery CD's

here's the setup there are 4 servers (eg.. Server-A, Server-B....) w/c are deployed on specific area(location)... for each server there are clients.. DC are setup per server as well as DHCP...
my question is...
Is it possible to setup a trust relationship from all servers? If yes, can it be managed remotely using this setup? if not any suggestions would be appreciated....

A:Remote Management

Are the servers within the same domain? If they are, there is no need for a trust relationship to be set up. If they are on seperate domains you can set up a trust relationship between any server you like between the two or more domains. I am not sure what you are referring to as far as managing. If you want an trust between domain controllers you can manage accounts and pretty much all other services yoyu want.

I have a small home network. My mother?s computer skills are worse than mine (which is saying something), therefore I get the ?its not working? or ?I have lost my work? whenever something happens. However I am away from home a lot (but normally have assess to an internet connection which I plug my laptop into) it is rally difficult to give her instructions over the phone. Is there a easy to use remote management software which is free. I currently us tight VNC on my network when there is a problem when I am at home. But to don?t know haw to access the home computers when I am away

Any suggestions, thanks

A:Remote management

I use RealVNC, which I assume works similar.

First, you need your external IP address provided by your ISP. Then you need to open a port on your router that forwards to the IP address of your wife's PC. That port should match the port that is configured in tight VNC. When you are away from home, you would remote control using the external IP addressort number.

A couple of things to reduce hacking and snooping:

1) if possible, I would change the default port that tight VNC uses as a precaution, in case someone knows your external IP address and knows about the default port
2) I assume tight VNC has password protection - use it!
3) Since you plan to use it to help your wife, implement the option to only allow the connection if the remote end user is given prompt to accept the connection (if tight VNC has this feature)
4) implement encryption on the connection. I had to purchase the RealVNC license to use this feature - it's not available with the free version

The above four items depends on what level of security you want.

Hello! I am new here, in hopes that someone a little smarter than I can help. Here is my scenario:
I have a teen who spends too much time on the internet. Yes, I can turn it off, but that is not what I want to do. I have searched for a router with parental controls that will allow me to block certain devices at certain times, and I have not found one. I did find a service called Web Curfew, that allows me to do just that. Which brings me to this problem: I have an internet service called Mountain Broadband. I have a receiver on the outside of my house, and a cable that comes from it, running into the house. That cable is plugged into a POE, and a LAN cable is coming out of the POE, then into my Netgear router. I have set my router to remote manage, but Web Curfew cannot connect to it because
"your router is not currently holding your public IP Address (the one we would use to contact you). The receiver device in front of it is. This is a common configuration and you need to “bridge” the receiver so that it acts a simple dumb modem rather than the MODEM + ROUTER it is currently acting as (you effectively have 2 routers in your home although you don’t know it).
Can you call your ISP customer support and ask them how you can “bridge” their POE adapter so that your router can obtain the public IP Address. They should be able to help you as lots of people want the ability to remote manage their router.

Hello all,

I'm trying to find a good remote power management doo-hickey, for our five or so servers at our co-lo.

Well, I'm trying to find a basic one actually. I need one that I can work with over our LAN, and that can shut off and return power to each machine individually.

That's pretty much it. The co-lo has 24/7 constant power, so I don't need anything that has anything to do with a UPS.
I also don't need anything that monitors everything there is to know about the power going here and there.

I don't need alert beeps and emails. Hell, I don't even need alerts.

When one of my users here tells the server over there to shut down instead of reboot, I just need to be able to sit in my chair, cut the power, and bring it back on.

So if anyone knows of any sort of thingy-mahoo like this that they've used, seen, or read about, please PLEASE let me know.

How do I set up a remote desktop connection with the other computers on my network? I've been trying to figure this out and am hitting a brick wall everytime i try. The computer i'm connecting to has XP and my main computer that i will be connecting from has Vista. I also want to know how to connect to my computers at home from a different location if i'm not home.

Please help me. I'm new to all this and will greatly appreciate your help.

A:Remote Desktop Management

You have a couple options
1. If you have a computer which run XP Professional or Media Center Edition, Windows already has the software "built-in" that will allow you to get to the XP computer (but the reverse isn't true. You cannot use it to connect from XP to logon to Vista)

2. There is freeware available that allows you to go either way

It might be simplest (at least to start) for you to first try/configure remote logon to your XP computer.

First questions are:
1) What firewall product are you running on your XP computer you want to login to?
2)What firewall product and Operating System are you running on the computer you want to logon from?
3)To connect to your home computer from outside your home, you must also open the firewall on your home router. What make/model is your router?

Hello All Seven Gurus, (I'm back)

It is not completely functional but I am well on my way. I have played with PowerShell and "shutdown -i" however would love to get the computer management (a GUI interface) functional again.

When I remotely connect via computer management to a remote Windows 7 system and try to view events, I get the following error message:

Good day, everyone.
I hope someone here can help me with my problem.

We've got 4 computers at home and I'm trying to find a way to remotely control the bandwidth that's being used by each computer. All computers are running on Windows XP Home SP2.

I've tried using Netlimiter on 2 computers to test if it's going to work but I keep on getting
"Access is Denied" error when I try to remotely access the other PC.
I've already setup the username and password.
I don't know where else I can setup permissions when I've already configured the settings on permissions editor of netlimiter.

Our router is a Netgear WGR614 v7. It doesn't have QoS management feature so I was hoping to find a bandwidth management tool that can also allow me to remotely control the bandwidth being used by 1 of the computers here since Netlimiter's remote management doesn't seem to be working for us.

I'm having problems trying to get remote management to work on a friend's Netgear DG834Gv2 wireless router modem (firmware version 3.01.31).

The router has a dynamic IP address but is permanently powered on so it only changes occasionally, but in addition I have set it to e-mail the status logs to me on a daily basis and can usually monitor any changes to the IP address when the lease expires or if a power outage occurs because the logs include details of port scans by source and destination address.

I can use VNC to access the desktop machine (XP Pro SP2) connected to the router from my PC (also XP2 SP2) by setting port forwarding on ports 5800 and 5900 to the desktop's reserved local IP address ( so I know I'm using the correct WAN IP address.

Remote management is enabled using port 8080 and for testing purposes is set to accept communications from any remote computer. The router is password protected (not the default p/w).

However, when I enter the IP address in to my browser (IE6) the router management console log on screen is not displayed (Page Not Found). I've tried entering the IP address (xx.xx.xx.xx:8080) with and without the http:// prefix and have also tried it with Google Chrome but the result is always the same.

Hey all,

I just set up PCAnywhere 11 and it's working great for me as far as accessing my PC from the internet using my laptop. For some reason, though, I can't seem to figure out the Remote Management options.

Whenever I try to log in to remote management it asks me for a User Name, Password, and Domain, but I can't find anywhere to set these up on the host computer. I've tried using the log-in name and PW I set up for myself but then I don't know what to put in for the domain. Anyone have any suggestions?

Both machines are Windows XP.
EDIT: Just screwing around with it now and noticed something else noteworthy. When I connect to Remote Management a password box comes up that I put my normal login info into. This box just wants a Login/PW. After I put those in a different box comes up asking for Login/PW/Domain, so it's obviously two different accounts - I just don't know the info for the second one.

I need to remotely access computer management of a computer that has a different user name and password than the administrator accounts on my local machine.
When I looked this up, I found this suggestion:
"C:> net use \\computername /user:computername\localadmin The password or user name is invalid for \\computername.
Enter the password for 'computername\localadmin' to connect to 'computername':
The command completed successfully.
Now you can launch compmgmt.msc to manage the remote PC."

However it doesn't work.  The net use command completes successfully, but when I run compmgmt.msc it still opens it up locally connected and if I try to connect to the remote computer through the mmc, I don't have any rights to view anything just
as if I never ran the net use command.
How do you use the remote computer management mmc when the administrator accounts are not the same on the local machine and the remote machine?

Remote Management of Win2K Servers: Three Secure Solutions

by Mark Burnett
last updated September 25, 2002


It's a common scenario: your company has an IIS Web server sitting 300 miles away at a high-bandwith, air-conditioned and power-regulated co-location center. The network is stable and the price is right, but you must completely manage the server remotely; you can't just go sit down at the console whenever you want. Remote management presents several problems, the most obvious being that the traffic between you and the server is travelling across the public Internet, available for others to sniff. Another problem is that remote administration normally involves installing software and opening ports, both of which increase the attack surface of your server. The goal when selecting a remote administration solution is to make sure that you (and only you) can do your job without exposing the server to additional risk.

In particular, the concerns when administering a remote server are:

SSH2 is a great solution for UNIX administration whether it's remote or not. I disable telnet, ftp, and similar on all of my systems. SSH2 with X-11 tunnelling works great with either Cygwin, Exceed, or similar!
On the other hand, I haven't had good results tunnelling VNC over SSH2. I've tried it between my RH 7.3 workstation and my Win2K laptop using a D-Link 10/100 Switch. The problem that I had was that the client would lock up and/or miss screen updates from the server. Direct VNC between the two worked great. I tried both the regular VNC and TightVNC with the same results. TightVNC did work a bit better (it lasted a minute before locking rather than 30 seconds).

If you're using OpenSSH I recommend the following: 1) Disable root logins, 2) Use shared key authentication over userid/password, and 3) Disable SSH1 protocol. You might also consider the added support/security of a non-open source SSH2 distro like F-Secure if you're in a corporate environment.

I'm not really sure about the advantages of using Zebedee over SSH2, if there are any. I don't see any known expoits for Zebedee while there have been several found for OpenSSH. You could look at this as either good or bad.

It's impossible to even understand how unbelievably pissed off I am right now. You know, when you tell a network administrator, that "access is denied" to his own home PCs? Hmm? Do you? You can't even imagine. I DO NOT take kindly to my computers giving
me an error saying "Access denied". With that said, let's continue.
Enter computer name.

This is not difficult. This is standard functionality in Windows. All admin accounts. Forced login via "net use" before connecting. Stored credentials. Same passwords and logins on each. Everything. Exactly. As. It. Should. Be.

3 computers, all cannot manage each other. 2 Win7 Pro x64 and 1 Win7 Home x64.

All firewalls are disabled. No matter what, if I do it from Computer Management, or from Services, or from Regedit... EVERY SINGLE ONE fails. I simply CANNOT ACCESS these remote services and it's pissing me right off.
And above all, how the hell has nobody on the internet ever even tried using this functionality before? How? Please tell me. There are zero relevant google results for this situation. Not a single person using Windows 7 has ever had this issue before. Has
nobody even tried? Does nobody use "Connect to a... Read more

A:Cannot access remote computer management (MMC) between two workgroup Win7 PCs

The last few posts in this topic (using Easy Transfer from a good system, export Shared Windows Settings only, import on broken PC), worked to fix the DCOM issue,
but I still... yeah, still couldn't access Services on ZBOX. 

error when trying to access COM+ applications under Component Services

Then, with the help of some virtual machines and fresh installs, I got it nailed. UAC.

I set up identical Win7 RTM x64 Home Premium virtual machines* and I saw exactly the same behavior there too, on brand new systems. So I knew it wasn't a problem with my system. And, recalling the event log from auditing failures, it seems that my user
account was being denied access to the services DB. As it should be with UAC without elevation.

See, when UAC is enabled, the "admin user account" is not an admin. The system utilizes "UAC virtualization", which basically "RunAs"'s a process with elevated privileges as needed. Since network access uses the local user account, that's why you don't
get (and never will get) share access to your Program Files and Windows folders.

So, on the test virtual machines, I set them both to "Never prompt". Then rebooted. Then tested it. Both ways connected successfully to the Services manager. OK. So I enabled UAC on the first VM and left it off on the other, and rebooted. Now the second
VM (UAC disabled) couldn't access the first (UAC enabled) anymore. But the first (enabl... Read more

Hello HP community, I've been upgrading our organization's laptops to Windows 10 and turning on BitLocker for TPM-enabled machines. We have a decent volume of the 6460b model (around 75), and I have gone through well over half of them without issue. I've had to turn the TPM on for several of them, but that's no problem. However, last week, I was getting two more of the laptops updated and suddently encountered an error message when going to the TPM Management interface within Windows: "Cannot load management console "Loading of the management console failed. The device that is required by this cryptographic provider is not ready for use. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80090030) Try again." The TPM shows in the device manager, but not in Speccy. The option in the BIOS for TPM controls is greyed out. I've tried the following and seen no change in symptoms:Uninstalling the TPM from the device manager and letting it re-install.Checking for any additional Windows updates.Updated the chipset drivers directly from the HP support site.Modifying the permissions in the BIOS to ensure that TPM options are set to "Change" rather than "View" or "Hide."Updating the BIOS with files from the HP support site.What other information could I provide that would help identify the issue here? It seems like the TPM is there because it continues to re-install itself after I remove it from the device manager. Further, the error indicates that it's not ready for use, implying ... Read more

I bought this router because of favorable comments here and because of its VPN capability. But first I want to setup remote management and that's giving me a headache.

I just updated the firmware and it says the level is V1.0.7.2_1.1.93.

In the Remote Management setup dialog (via routerlogin.net) I clicked the box to turn on remote management. I told it to allow any ol' IP address. And I gave it a port number which I don't think is blocked by my ISP (let's say 12345).

The router is installed at NewHouse and I determine the IP address by asking my browser " what is my IP address?"

If I direct my browser to NewHouseIpAddress:12345 I get an immediate error message "This site can't be reached."

Thinking I might have chosen a port blocked by my ISP I also tried NewHouseIpAddress:80 (a port which my IP claims to block) and ... I got into the router's login dialog!!!

I don't expect anyone here can explain why my ISP is not blocking port 80 which they claim to block. But I hope someone can explain why my specified port for remote management does not work.

I will appreciate any help/ideas/sympathy/pointers.

Thanks, Bob

This is nothing new to me, that is to say, managing shares from the Computer Management Snap-In. What is "new" to me is why on certain machines on the network the "Properties" and "Stop Sharing" items are not listed int he context menu when you right-click on a share. Is this a permissions issue? I can't see that it would be seeing as how the "Computer Administrator" is ticked in the "Users" control panel. Any ideas? I've actually wondered about this for a long time, but now it's essential that I know.

A:Share Management via "Computer Management" Snap-In

Yes this is permission issue. You have to give user file sharing permission and security permission.If you give premission to user to use files or share have to check your security permission.Also make sure users power user permission on local computer.Check your GPO for users instead.

You can also try SFC scan:

The System File Checker tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the system files by using the correct versions.

To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
1. Click Start and then type cmd in the Start Search box.

2. Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue
3. At the command prompt, the following line, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow

4. Hit Enter.

The SFC scan should replace the corrupted files.
I hope this helps you, Good Luck.

Hello folks, My y510p is painfully slow after bootup, highly annoying.  I have tried researching it and see several references to lenovo power management possibly being the issue.  When I look in startup via task manager, I see both lenovo battery management and lenovo energy management.  What is the difference?  Should I have them both?  Can I uninstall one or both, and if so, how?  I do not see them in control panel or elsewhere. ThanksChad

I'm having an issue where when attempting to create a local port, on a remote PC via the Print Management Console in Windows 7, I get an "Access Denied" error message.

All machines are domain joined.Tried with W10 and Server 2008 R2, too - same issue.Firewall (all three states) off.AV solution completely removed.Tried with highest domain admin account.Tried with UAC turned off and on.Ran as admin when launching console.GP - Point and Print Restrictions - Disabled.GP - Allow Print Spooler to accept client connections - Enabled.Print and File Sharing - On.Network Sharing - On.
To clarify, it is simply creating the port element that fails.

Can create TCP/IP ports OK.Can create Local Ports on the local machine OK - just not on remote machines.Can install printer if an existing local port is used, so drivers install OK.Using PowerShell, can use the Add Printer Port command to add the local port, no problems there.
It just seems to be an issue where the console attempts to verify if the said port exists, that the issue occurs.  If a put in an invalid port name in, it will bring up the correct response of "the network name cannot be found".
