    I have install the administration toolpack on Windows 7 and enabled remote connections on my server 2008 box, When i try and connect with my Windows 7 server manager it does not work.

    I see stuff on google about enabling a trustedhost with winrm but can't find a way to do this.

    this seem more difficult than it should be?

    this is what I keep getting

    Check Technet for the WinRM reference and or make sure that WinRM is enabled on the servers you are trying to access.

    Use group policy to enable it if you need to do a bunch of machines at once. I'm using this with no problems.
