i frequently use remote desktop, gotoassist express and logmein to administer servers or end user terminals.
in certain circumstances there is significant latency or low bandwidth where a full console is either slow, superfluous (i.e. if i'm using powershell to administer exchange via rdp) or overkill (i.e. an end user would like to use the machine at the same time, and i need to use cmd, robocopy, wget, etc)
in this circumstances i'd like a simple facility for enabling remote administration via powershell or cmd. assuming i already have full access to the machine via gotoassist, logmein, etc, what would be the simplest method for enabling this?
winrm would be a superb technology, but it's far too messy to setup. something ad-hoc would be excellent, but the simpler the better. ideally something as simple as gotoassist's 'open the program, enter this code and we'll open the tunnel for you' would be perfect. needless to say this is over the internet and would have to be 100% secure and encrypted, however.
