WinRM over HTTPS



Hello, I'm configuring the Windows update status Sensor, but i need to use HTTPS transport in Remote Powershell.

I change the port from 5985 to 5986 but not run.

I try to Enter-PSSession -ComputerName <host> -UseSSL from PRTG server and runs ok.

Best Regards

Hi there,

As the Windows Update Info Sensor, in its current state, only works within a domain itself - it uses only HTTP as HTTPS is the actual fallback when you monitor devices outside the domain. We are about to fix this and will add future improvement to the sensor.

Best regards.
