How can you retrieve connected node's speed and duplex remotely

We need to get Speed and Duplex of networked machine via CMD or powershell.   Is there a way to do this, and to get the information, without looking at the switch?

Powershell command:
Get-NetAdapter | SELECT name, fullduplex, linkspeed

Open in new window

Sample output:
name                          fullduplex LinkSpeed
----                          ---------- ---------
Ethernet 3                          True 1 Gbps
vEthernet (HyperV)                       10 Gbps
vEthernet (Default Switch)               10 Gbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet5       True 100 Mbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet4       True 100 Mbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet3       True 100 Mbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet8       True 100 Mbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet2       True 100 Mbps
VMware Network Adapter VMnet1       True 100 Mbps
Npcap Loopback Adapter              True 1.2 Gbps
Ethernet 2                          True 100 Mbps

True = Full Duplex
False = Half Duplex

Harder to read speed:
 Get-NetAdapter | SELECT name, fullduplex, speed

Open in new window

Sample output:
name                          fullduplex       speed
----                          ----------       -----
Ethernet 3                          True  1000000000
vEthernet (HyperV)                       10000000000
vEthernet (Default Switch)               10000000000
VMware Network Adapter VMnet5       True   100000000
