cannot execute PS command remotely

Last Modified: 2014-06-25
I need to run a PS command on a lot of remote computer but I am getting an error: The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request..  

AFter some research, the "winrm quickconfig" needs to be run on each server in order for command like "winrs -r:server1 dir" to work.

I have a lot of servers.  Is there another way to run "winrm quickconfig" from remote?

Please advise.
