The Set-WSManQuickConfig cmdlet configures the computer to receive Windows PowerShell remote commands that are sent by 
using the Web Services for Management (WS-Management) technology.

The cmdlet performs the following:

-- Checks whether the WinRM service is running. If the WinRM service is not running, the service is started.

-- Sets the WinRM service startup type to automatic.

-- Creates a listener to accept requests on any IP address. By default, the transport is HTTP.

-- Enables a firewall exception for WinRM traffic .

To run this cmdlet, start Windows PowerShell with the "Run as administrator" option.
