Local access to the Intel AMT Web UI

Prior to Intel® AMT 6.1, if you wanted to connect to the AMT Web UI, it had to be done remotely.  Starting with Intel® AMT 6.1 we are able to connect to the WebUI locally.  If your system has AMT 6.0 firmware, check with your OEM's support site and there might be a newer 6.1 or 6.2 version of the FW available.

Requirements for local access:

  • Administrator with User Rights
  • Intel AMT must be enabled in order to log in to Web UI
  • Intel AMT 6.1 or higher

Requirements for remote access:

  • Administrator with User Rights
  • Any AMT version
  • Intel AMT must be enabled in order to log in to Web UI
  • Network connectivity  (Make sure both systems return ping responses.)

Access the Web UI by entering the IP address and one of the following port numbers into the address bar of the web browser:

  • 16992 – Use if TLS is NOT defined (use http)
  • 16993 – Use if TLS is defined (use https)


Connections using the FQDN requires either that the DHCP server is configured to register the FQDN to a DNS server or the hosts file on the remote computer maps the FQDN to an IP address.

The following web browsers are supported for all versions of Intel AMT.

  • Microsoft* Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 or later
  • Netscape* 7.2 or later for Windows* and Linux*
  • Mozilla* Firefox 1.0 or newer for Windows and Linux
  • Mozilla* 1.7 or later for Windows and Linux

When connecting to the Web UI, there will be a prompt to authenticate by logging in with a user that was defined in the Intel AMT ACL:  (Account Control List)

  • You can use the default “admin” user with the MEBx password (which is also the current network password).
  • You can use a user that was defined during the provisioning process, or the default admin with the current network password (which may vary from the MEBx password).
  • If the browser supports Kerberos authentication, you should authenticate with a domain user that has access rights to the Intel AMT. (In Internet Explorer, support for Kerberos is defined in: ToolsInternet OptionsAdvanced. In the "Security" section, select Enable Integrated Windows Authentication.)

If you have questions about enabling AMT, here is a short "video" on how to do this using the MEBx Menus.

If you have questions about what version of AMT your system has (or if it is AMT capable) here is a short video on using the SCS Discovery Tool.
