Question about Powershell and Wireless

Post by localpct »

Since I don't test anything at home, is it our network at work or does powershell not work over wireless. Even if I run a simple command say

Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $computer -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" | Foreach-Object { "{0:n2}" -f ($_.FreeSpace/1GB) + " Gigabytes" }

on a wireless connected computer, no dice. Wired = good.

PowerShell works on all wireless networks.

You must be an administrator and the firewall and other things must be set up correctly for PowerShell to work on any network.

Then it's a firewall issue. I can bring that up to our firewall guys. Thank you so much!!!
