Before going to the problem, I want to remind you that, do wrap your code snippets around the [code] tags.

To use WMI, windows firewall should be disabled on the remote pc.

I got this output(omitted the entire output)...

  1. -----------------------------------\nWin32_Service instance-----------------------------------Caption: Alerter

Inaddition to WMI you can also look at ServiceControll er Class. You need to specify Machine name and service name for remote pcs..
For WMI to work on remote pcs.. specially for admin tasks, there are certain issues... do check the links posted here
WMI Remote
Also check this implementation on MSDN start stop services

just after:
ConnectionOptio ns connection = new ConnectionOptio ns();
