Is it possible to get a remote windows server OS version and IP address without access permission on that server?

I know VBScript (  Set colGroups = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "")      colGroups.Filter = Array("group")  ) can get remote windows server groups information. Is there similar way to get server OS, IP address information.

When I use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) query, do I must have access permission on that server?

Thanks in advance.
