Introduced in Windows PowerShell 2.0, Remoting is one of PowerShell's most useful, and most important, core technologies. It enables you to run almost any command that exists on a remote computer, opening up a universe of possibilities for bulk and remote administration. Remoting underpins other technologies, including Workflow, Desired State Configuration, certain types of background jobs, and much more. This guide isn't intended to be a complete document of what Remoting is and does, although it does provide a good introduction. Instead, this guide is designed to document all the little configuration details that don't appear to be documented elsewhere.

Check for Updates! Our ebooks are often updated with new and corrected content. We make them available in three ways:
On LeanPub, where you can download as PDF, EPUB, or MOBI (login required), and "purchase" the books to make a donation to DevOps Collective. You can also choose to be notified of updates. Visit https://leanpub.com/u/devopscollective
GitBook and LeanPub have slightly different PDF formatting output, so you can choose the one you prefer. LeanPub can also notify you when we push updates. Our main GitHub repo is authoritative; repositories on other sites are usually just mirrors used for the publishing process. GitBook will usually contain our latest version, including not-yet-finished bits; LeanPub always contains the most recent "public release" of any book.
