Connect PerfMon to a Remote Server

I faced several connectivity issue during connecting Perfmon from remote server.

Server Access denied
Solution: PerfMon is trying to connect the remote server using logged in user account which have no access on remote server. Now, I need to run perfmon using a different user account which has access to the remote server.

DNS not able to resolve the server name
Solution: I have fixed the issue by adding an entry in the hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc).

Unable to connect the server
Solution: I have checked & found that Perfmon is trying to use Port 445 for connectivity. Telnet showed that port number 445 is blocked. I have added port into firewall exception & it worked.
