Executing WIndows Commands for Remote PCs
Posted on 2011-09-26
I noticed that many of the WIndows commands, allow you to give as parameter the IP address and credentials of a remote PC, in order to apply the command to a remote PC instead of the local system (i.e. to get system information or shut down a PC remotely).
What protocol/TCP port number is used in order for the local PC to connecto to the remote PC and execute the command? Is there a specific service that must be strated on the remote PC, in order for this to work?
