Day 14 is upon us! In today’s post, we are going to take a look at the new feature in Windows Server 2012 called PowerShell Web Access.
What is PowerShell Web Access? Glad you asked!
Examples of client devices include laptops, non-work personal computers, borrowed computers, tablet computers, web kiosks, computers that are not running a Windows-based operating system, and cell phone browsers. IT Pros can perform critical management tasks on remote Windows-based servers from devices that have access to an Internet connection and a web browser.
Here is diagram with a high overview of how PowerShell Web Access works:
