PowerShell Core 6.0.2 connectivity error

Good afternoon!
Looking at Powershell core, trying to establish a connection from windows2012 to a fedora26 vm and a redhat7 vm. Both linux vm’s have powershell core installed and I can establish connectivity between the linux vm’s from the pwsh prompt. However from windows 2012 to fedora26 vm using the following commands:
New-PSSession -HostName -Username nlong -SSHTransport I get the following error message:

  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed
    PS C:\Powershell_Test> New-PSSession -HostName -Username nlong -
    PS C:\Powershell_Test> New-PSSession -HostName -Username nlong -
    New-PSSession : [] An error has occurred which PowerShell cannot
    handle. A remote session might have ended.
    At line:1 char:1
  • New-PSSession -HostName -Username nlong -SSHTransport
  • CategoryInfo : OpenError: (System.Manageme…RemoteRunspace:RemoteRu
    nspace) [New-PSSession], PSRemotingDataStructureException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed
    PS C:\Powershell_Test>

Have installed kitty on the windows2012 vm and can via kitty establish an ssh connection to our fedora and rhel7 vm’s.

There must be something I’m missing or not understanding. Any insights would be appreciated.


Hi Norm,
On your Windows system are you using PowerShell Core (pwsh) to initiate the SSH based remoting session from Windows->Linux? If you want to use SSH remoting into your Windows boxes, check out this link here for setting that up. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/scripting/core-powershell/ssh-remoting-in-powershell-core?view=powershell-6#setup-on-windows-machine


Hi Anthony;
Using pwsh for windows to linux connectivity.
