Am following "secrets to powershell remoting" to setup an SLL account and seem to be missing a step.

I ran

Winrm create winrm/config/Listener?Address=*+Transport=HTTPS @{Hostname="redacted";CertificateThumbprint="redacted"}

and got

PS WSMan:\localhost> dir wsman:\localhost\listener\Listener_1184937132

Trouble is when i do this

PS C:\Users\redacted> enter-pssession -Computername redacted -Credential redacted\redacted -UseSSL

I get this

Enter-PSSession : Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The client cannot connect to th
e destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests
. Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or Win
RM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the
WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig". For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
At line:1 char:16
+ enter-pssession <<<<  -Computername redacted -Credential redacted\redacted -UseSSL
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (redacted:String) [Enter-PSSession], PSRemotingTransportException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CreateRemoteRunspaceFailed

This happens even when the firewall is off completely and when the machine tires to connect to itself locally.

On top of that, despite the listners eing lsited on wsman, when I run

PS WSMan:\localhost&gt; Get-PSSessionConfiguration

I get

Name                      PSVersion  StartupScript        Permission
----                      ---------  -------------        ----------
Microsoft.PowerShell      2.0


PS WSMan:\localhost&gt;

Any ideas what I'm missing/doing wrong?

edit: Windows 2003. Powershell v2.0
