winrs [-/SWITCH[:VALUE]] COMMAND
COMMAND - Any string that can be executed as a command in the cmd.exe shell.
(All switches accept both short form or long form. For example both -r and
-remote are valid.)
-r[emote]:ENDPOINT - The target endpoint using a NetBIOS name or the standa
rd connection URL: [TRANSPORT://]TARGET[:PORT]. If not specified
-r:localhost is used.
-un[encrypted] - Specify that the messages to the remote shell will not
be encrypted. This is useful for troubleshooting, or when the network traffic i
s already encrypted using ipsec, or when physical security is enforced. By defau
lt the messages are encrypted using Kerberos or NTLM keys. This switch is ignore
d when HTTPS transport is selected.
-u[sername]:USERNAME - Specify username on command line. If not specified the
tool will use Negotiate authentication or prompt for the name.
If -username is specified, -password must be as well.
-p[assword]:PASSWORD - Specify password on command line. If -password is not
specified but -username is the tool will prompt for the password. If -password i
s specified, -user must be specified as well.
-t[imeout]:SECONDS - This option is deprecated.
-d[irectory]:PATH - Specifies starting directory for remote shell. If not
specified the remote shell will start in the user's home directory defined by th
e environment variable %USERPROFILE%.
-env[ironment]:STRING=VALUE - Specifies a single environment variable to be se

le occurrences of this switch must be used to specify multiple environment varia
-noe[cho] - Specifies that echo should be disabled. This may be ne
cessary to ensure that user's answers to remote prompts are not displayed locall
y. By default echo is "on".
-nop[rofile] - Specifies that the user's profile should not be loaded
. By default the server will attempt to load the user profile. If the remote use
r is not a local administrator on the target system then this option will be req
uired (the default will result in error).
-a[llow]d[elegate] - Specifies that the user's credentials can be used to a
ccess a remote share, for example, found on a different machine than the target
-comp[ression] - Turn on compression. Older installations on remote ma
chines may not support compression so it is off by default.
-[use]ssl - Use an SSL connection when using a remote endpoint. S
pecifying this instead of the transport "https:" will use the default WinRM defa

To terminate the remote command the user can type Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Break, which wi
