Enable Remoting:
PowerShell Remoting feature relies on Windows Remote Management (WS-Man) technology. In order for remoting to work, make sure that the WS-Man Winrm service is installed and started. To verify that Winrm service is running, do the following:                                PS> get-service winrmSetup places a PowerShell script (Configure-Wsman.ps1) in $pshome folder that configures WS-Man settings. To configure WS-Man for PowerShell remoting feature, please run the configure-WSMan.ps1 script from PowerShell folder (run elevated for Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista SP1). This script does not start or stop WinRM service.                & $pshome\Configure-Wsman.ps1

Known issue: 

·         To use Remoting Cmdlets and features, PowerShell must be started as administrator/elevated. 

      ·        PowerShell 2.0 Remoting features will not work correctly on Windows Vista RTM. Please install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) Beta to enable PowerShell Remoting features.
