Here is a good example of running PowerShell session on a remote computer called office-server. The example assumes that the local computer and the remote computer are in the same domain, and you have a domain login name and password.

1. Login on the local computer with your domain login name and password.

2. Start a PowerShell window on the local computer and run the following cmdlets:

PS C:\fyicenter> New-PSSession office-server
[office-server]: PS C:\Users\fyicenter\Documents>

[office-server]: PS C:\Users\fyicenter\Documents> query user
 USERNAME              SESSIONNAME        ID  STATE   IDLE TIME  
 fyicenter             rdp-tcp#0           2  Active          .  

[office-server]: PS C:\Users\fyicenter\Documents> get-host
Name             : ConsoleHost
Version          : 3.0
UI               : System.Management.Automation.Internal.Host.InternalHostUserInterface
CurrentCulture   : en-US
CurrentUICulture : en-US
PrivateData      : Microsoft.PowerShell.ConsoleHost+ConsoleColorProxy
IsRunspacePushed : False

[office-server]: PS C:\Users\fyicenter\Documents> exit
PS C:\fyicenter>
