    Hi @NM
    There are 4 Ways to Start, Stop Services on A Remote Windows Computer.

    1. SC.exe - Communicates with the Service Controller and installed services, It’s a built-in command line since Windows XP. It interacts with local and remote services.
    2. PSService from Sysinternals
    3. PowerShell
    4. Service Manager MMC

    Refer - with detailed process on the 4 services.
