connecting to a remote compuer

Recommended Posts


I am trying to connect to a remote computer. first thing i want the script to do is check that the computer is on the system. i verified that it does by using Ping and the computer name. which gives me the ip address.

i used the following code for that, but it returned the error message that the compute could not be located.

any ideas on why, as the ping give me a valid ip address. also once this done how do i code the script to connect

$ipaddress (found from ping command, not listed here for security reasons)

$oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $ipAddress & "\root\CIMV2")

If Not IsObj($oWMIService) Then
    MsgBox(48, "ERROR", "Couldn't locate the computer. Please make sure you've selected the correct computer and try again.")
