Tip

These are ADMX-backed policies and require a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.

RemoteManagement/AllowRemoteServerManagement

Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
Home No No
Pro Yes Yes
Business Yes Yes
Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting allows you to manage whether the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service automatically listens on the network for requests on the HTTP transport over the default HTTP port.

If you enable this policy setting, the WinRM service automatically listens on the network for requests on the HTTP transport over the default HTTP port.

To allow WinRM service to receive requests over the network, configure the Windows Firewall policy setting with exceptions for Port 5985 (default port for HTTP).

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting, the WinRM service won't respond to requests from a remote computer, regardless of whether or not any WinRM listeners are configured.

The service listens on the addresses specified by the IPv4 and IPv6 filters. The IPv4 filter specifies one or more ranges of IPv4 addresses, and the IPv6 filter specifies one or more ranges of IPv6addresses. If specified, the service enumerates the available IP addresses on the computer and uses only addresses that fall within one of the filter ranges.

You should use an asterisk (*) to indicate that the service listens on all available IP addresses on the computer. When * is used, other ranges in the filter are ignored. If the filter is left blank, the service doesn't listen on any addresses.

For example, if you want the service to listen only on IPv4 addresses, leave the IPv6 filter empty.

Ranges are specified using the syntax IP1-IP2. Multiple ranges are separated using "," (comma) as the delimiter.

Example IPv4 filters:\n2.0.0.1-2.0.0.20, 24.0.0.1-24.0.0.22 Example IPv6 filters:\n3FFE:FFFF:7654:FEDA:1245:BA98:0000:0000-3FFE:FFFF:7654:FEDA:1245:BA98:3210:4562

This policy setting allows you to manage whether the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service won't allow RunAs credentials to be stored for any plug-ins.

If you enable this policy setting, the WinRM service won't allow the RunAsUser or RunAsPassword configuration values to be set for any plug-ins. If a plug-in has already set the RunAsUser and RunAsPassword configuration values, the RunAsPassword configuration value will be erased from the credential store on this computer.

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting, the WinRM service will allow the RunAsUser and RunAsPassword configuration values to be set for plug-ins and the RunAsPassword value will be stored securely.

If you enable and then disable this policy setting, any values that were previously configured for RunAsPassword will need to be reset.

RemoteManagement/SpecifyChannelBindingTokenHardeningLevel

Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
Home No No
Pro Yes Yes
Business Yes Yes
Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting allows you to set the hardening level of the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service regarding channel binding tokens.

If you enable this policy setting, the WinRM service uses the level specified in HardeningLevel to determine whether or not to accept a received request, based on a supplied channel binding token.

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting, you can configure the hardening level locally on each computer.

If HardeningLevel is set to Strict, any request not containing a valid channel binding token is rejected.

If HardeningLevel is set to Relaxed (default value), any request containing an invalid channel binding token is rejected. However, a request that doesn't contain a channel binding token is accepted (though it isn't protected from credential-forwarding attacks).

If HardeningLevel is set to None, all requests are accepted (though they aren't protected from credential-forwarding attacks).

  • GP Friendly name: Specify channel binding token hardening level
  • GP name: CBTHardeningLevel_1

RemoteManagement/TrustedHosts

Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
Home No No
Pro Yes Yes
Business Yes Yes
Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting allows you to manage whether the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) client uses the list specified in TrustedHostsList to determine if the destination host is a trusted entity.

If you enable this policy setting, the WinRM client uses the list specified in TrustedHostsList to determine if the destination host is a trusted entity. The WinRM client uses this list when HTTPS or Kerberos is used to authenticate the identity of the host.

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting and the WinRM client needs to use the list of trusted hosts, you must configure the list of trusted hosts locally on each computer.

ADMX Info:
