User story

As a PRTG user, I want sensors to monitor the basic health status (Memory, CPU, Disks, Uptime, etc) of Windows operating systems using WinRM (PowerShell Remoting) instead of WMI.

Details of user story

I would need to monitor through WinRM specifying different ports than the standard PSRemoting. WMI does not allow to specify different ports to connect to the device.

Acceptance criteria

  • Sensors must have the ability to specify a different port than the PSRemoting default port.
