Getting taskkill to work on windows network

In order to get taskkill to work, and get rid of the “RCP server not available” error, run the following command on the target computer:

netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin enable

And turn off UAC. I haven’t found a way to get this working with UAC turned on. Kept saying I was inputting an invalid username/password even though I was not.

For reference, to kill a task on the target computer, run this from a computer in the network;

taskkill /S 192.168.178.xx /im notepad.exe
