Problem Description:
The about_Remote_Troubleshooting topic needs to be updated for 2012 (R2). The group policy setting name has changed:

Allow automatic configuration of listeners (2008 R2)
Allow remote server management through WinRM (2012 R2)

The policy name appears twice in the help text:

-- To configure listeners for remoting, enable the "Allow automatic
configuration of listeners" group policy. For instructions, see
"How to Enable Listeners by Using a Group Policy" (below).

HOW TO ENABLE LISTENERS BY USING A GROUP POLICY
------------------------------------------------
ERROR: ACCESS IS DENIED
- or -
ERROR: The connection to the remote host was refused. Verify that the
WS-Management service is running on the remote host and configured to
listen for requests on the correct port and HTTP URL.

To configure the listeners for all computers in a domain, enable the "Allow
automatic configuration of listeners" policy in the following Group Policy
path:

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components
\Windows Remote Management (WinRM)\WinRM service

Enable the policy and specify the IPv4 and IPv6 filters. Wildcards (*) are
permitted.

On a 2012 R2 server, edit a group policy and browse to Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Remote Management (WinRM) \ WinRM service.

Expected Results:
Expect to find: Allow automatic configuration of listeners. Actually find: Allow remote server management through WinRM.
