  • Normally the answer is yes, as long as you can reach the machines via the network from the location you are scanning from. You need to make sure that you for instance set the firewall to allow Remote Administration. More about the requirements can be found in the Getting started guide which can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7826 

    Regarding the firewall ports and requirements see Section 1: Prepare your environment.
