I am trying to remote to a freshly installed Windows Server 2012 R2 (preview) but I am not successfull. I did this from my Windows 8 client.

PS C:\> Enter-PSSession 192.168.1.131 -Credential Get-Credential
Enter-PSSession : Connecting to remote server 192.168.1.131 failed with the following error message : Access is denied.
For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
At line:1 char:1
+ Enter-PSSession 192.168.1.131 -Credential Get-Credential
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (192.168.1.131:String) [Enter-PSSession], PSRemotingTransportException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : CreateRemoteRunspaceFailed

For some reason I am not able to Enter-PSSession to this machine. If I test Enter-PSSession locally (localhost) it works fine. And if I do Test-WSMan from my client everything seems fine:

PS C:\> Test-WSMan 192.168.1.131

wsmid : http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wsman/identity/1/wsmanidentity.xsd
ProtocolVersion : http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wsman/1/wsman.xsd
ProductVendor : Microsoft Corporation
ProductVersion : OS: 0.0.0 SP: 0.0 Stack: 3.0

I can access an identically setup Windows Server 2012 core machine without problems:

PS C:\> Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value '192.168.1.130' -Concatenate
PS C:\> Enter-PSSession 192.168.1.130 -Credential Get-Credential
[192.168.1.130]: PS C:\Users\Administrator\Documents>

but when I try to access the Windows Server 2012 R2 preview I get access denied. I have check that I use the correct credentials many times.

Have something changed in 2012 R2 that makes remoting to WORGROUP Machines different?

I'd appreciate any ideas! Any tips?

Cheers,
Joakim

192.168.1.131 is also added to the TrustedHosts list?

Yes, the IP 192.168.1.131 is also added, I missed to illustrate that.

Any other suggestions?

What do you get for:

Test-WSMan 192.168.1.131 -Authentication default -Credential $cred
