Enabling WS-Management through Group Policy

How can I enable WS-Management through Group Policy?

A. Enabling WS-Management is possible through Group Policy via the WinRM Service at Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Remote Management. Enable “Allow automatic configuration of listeners,” and you’ll notice other options in the same policy location regarding the use of Kerberos/Basic authentication. During this configuration, you must select the IP addresses that will be listened from. To allow listening from anywhere, enter an asterisk (*) for the filter.
