    I managed to get winrm to work on my local network but when I try to go through the WAN using either my IP address or my DNS address it fails. I have ports 5895-5896 forwarded and I can get to the "enter password" prompt for both HTTP & HTTPS but after typing it in I get this for HTTP
    "Winrs error:The WinRM client cannot process the request. If the authentication scheme is different from Kerberos, or if the client computer is not joined to a domain, then HTTPS transport must be used or the destination machine must be added to the TrustedHosts configuration setting. Use winrm.cmd to configure TrustedHosts. Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated. You can get more information about that by running the following command: winrm help config."

    and this for HTTPS "Winrs error:The WinRM client cannot complete the operation within the time specified. Check if the machine name is valid and is reachable over the network and firewall exception for Windows Remote Management service is enabled."

    Has anyone else ran into this and have any suggestions?
