I'm trying to get the events log from a remote computer, using the following code. I can get the information if I'm working on the computer but not if connected in remote. My local computer is Windows 7 and the remote W2003.

Therefore,  what should I do?
strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

You should try this  (after having set strcomputer, struser, strpassword with the ip address of your remote computer, and a user/password that has access to this computer)


strComputer="192.168.0.10"
strUser="myDomain\adminaccount"
strPassword="adminpassword"

Set WbemLocator= CreateObject("wbemscripting.swbemlocator")
set objWMIService=wbemLocator.connectServer(strComputer,,strUser,strPassword)
