Maybe remote desktop is not available or perhaps you just want to check or restart a windows service on a remote computer. Follow the steps below to open windows services through MMC. This applies to Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8; as well as Windows Server Editions.
Launch MMC by hitting the windows key and searching for MMC.
Go to File > Add/Remove Snap-In.
Click on “services” and click add.
Select “Another Computer” and type in the name of the computer you are wanting to check on the services for.
You should now have the services available.
If the above doesn’t connect, it is probably due to a security issue or firewall. Try allowing “Remote Service Management” in the firewall on the computer you are trying to connect to.
