My remote computer has a custom HTTPS WinRM port, I can connect to it using Enter-PSSession just fine and everything works as expected, but don't know how to do it in Windows Admin Center, couldn't find any related info about using custom ports in WAC. I tried IP:port combination in computer name in WAC when adding a new Windows PC, but it couldn't find it. I need to use IP because my 2 computers are 2 separate client PCs, no server, AD or domain controller exists and they aren't on the same network, but like I mentioned, using PowerShell it works flawlessly.

Enter-PSSession -ComputerName "IP Address" -UseSSL -Credential (Get-Credential) -SessionOption (New-PSSessionOption -SkipCACheck) -port "Custom Port Number"  

But what's the right way to do this for Windows Admin Center?
