I am trying to enable PowerShell Remoting on my desktop where I am an Administrator. I have setup Powershell Remoting on my laptop and it works (going from my laptop to a remote server). On my desktop I am getting "Access is denied." I tried PowerShell as Administrator in 32 and 64 bit. I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

So you're saying that you can access it with your laptop but not desktop? and that both laptop and desktop have the same setting? – chmod Mar 14 '12 at 18:15

I had to be logged in as a domain user to see the error:

WinRM firewall exception will not work since one of the network connection types on this machine is set to Public
