Accessing your PowerShellget repository from another machine

So far the new PowerShellGet repository has been accessed from the local machine. You need to register the new repository on each machine from which you want to access it.

Register-PSRepository -Name PowerShellModules -SourceLocation http://W12R2DSC:81/nuget/PowerShellModules -InstallationPolicy Trusted

 

The only change to is substituting the name of the server for localhost in the source location URI.

 

NOTE: you will need to ensure that the Windows firewall is either off or allows the appropriate traffic through to the server hosting you repository

 

You can use the new repository

PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-PSRepository | ft Name, SourceLocation -AutoSize

Name              SourceLocation
----              --------------
PSGallery         https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/
MSPSGallery       http://search.microsoft.com/default.aspx
PowerShellModules http://w12r2dsc:81/nuget/PowerShellModules
