Q7300090: I want to check a service on a remote computer. Should I use the 'long name' (i.e. display name) or the registry name of the service?
You can use either the short name (as it appears in the registry, in 'HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services') or its display name (as it appears in the control panel). Make sure that the Network Monitor service has sufficient permissions to check the service on the remote machine. Local Admin permissions on the server you are monitoring is recommended.
