Q7240010: What is the difference between WMI/DCOM and WMI/WinRM

WMI/DCOM is the older protocol for accessing WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) data remotely. WMI/WinRM is a newer, more secure protocol that replaced WMI/DCOM. WMI/WinRM uses the WS-Management protocol and uses encrypted, HTTP-based communication. It also supports remote access over the Internet, while WMI/DCOM was limited to local networks.
