A wmic tutorial can be found at this webpage for example: http://www.2000trainers.com/windows-scripting/using-wmi/ .

If you want to find out who is connected to your wmic, you could first run the command "wmic process list brief", find the process ID for the wmi servers, and then look it up with the command "netstat -nao | find "<process id>". The ip/hostnames which that command outputs would be the ones connected to your wmi server. Also, if the above wmic command worked, the wmic system seems to work properly :)
