AMT - How to enable HTTPS


I'm trying to enable HTTPS on my VPRO enabled server.
HTTP (on port 16992) runs without problems but I think it is not a good idea holding a port always open on my router (directly connected to internet) and sending password on an unsecured connection.

Basically this is my actual configuration (host side):

- a router/firewall directly connected to WAN/Internet with port-forwarding enabled on port 16992 (this port is always open)

- AMT enabled / TLS disabled on host computer (this computer is directly connected to the router)

MBEx User Consent

Hello to all,

I have a question that I hope you all can help me address. We are in the process of provisioning our workstations in my environment so that we can use the Intel KVM functionality. With that being said, we have several Dell workstations each running a different version of AMT firmware. The firmware on our workstations ranges from 7.1.2, 7.1.4, 8.0.4 and 8.1.0.

img file format support for ide-r redirection in Linux


In AMT 9.5 SDK(IntelAMT9.5.0.27Gold) there is note related to img/iso file redirection for Linux

When working in Linux, Redirection is supported with physical disks only.  There is no Linux Redirection support for iso or img files.

But when I checked the Redirection sample program available in AMT 9.5 SDK(ntelamt9.5.0.27gold\IntelAMT9.5.0.27Gold\Linux\Intel_AMT\Samples\Redirection\RedirectionSample), it shows like iso/img can be redirected. README have following details

AMT 9: "Authentication failed x times. The system may be under attack."


I recently deployed a Lenovo M93p desktop that has AMT 9.0.2-build 1345. I set up vPro from MEBx, changing the password as required when I first went in to MEBx. That's the password I'm still using to access the web UI.

The web UI event log is reporting thousands of authentication failures (see screen shot).Since the vPro ports are only open inside the LAN and across a private VPN, it's unlikely that it's a real attack.

I found a 2009 reference on this:

imrsdk Temporary Files

I am using HLAPI that came with the AMT 8.1.4198 SDK. I am trying to use HLAPI Redirection with TLS to remotely install another OS using a web interface. I was able to sucessfully change the HLAPIVariables.TempFilesDirectory so that temporary files are created in a directory the site has write access to. This is essential since the application running the actual code is IIS. This works fine and the MC.ini file created by the RedirectionImpl class is created in the temporary directory I created. However the imrsdk dll also creates some temporary files, a log file and a client.db file.

Cannot connect to vPro 9 from MDTK 1.26


I found this forum from the Open Manageability Developer Tool Kit (MDTK) page.

I'm setting up a new Lenovo M93p running AMT 9.0.2-build 1345. This is for a small business, so it's all manual provisioning. I've turned on SOL, IDER, and KVM. I've set user consent to NONE.

I can access the machine via a web browser (port 16992) for power control, log viewing, etc. However when I try to Connect from MDTK 1.26, the connection times out. Same thing if I try to connect from UltraVNC.

How to stop iAMT from resetting during power outtage

Hi. We're trying to use iAMT on some boards that are being developed for us, but having one issue:

We setup a MEBx password on the board, and everything works great. We have Admin level access and can KVM/etc as needed. However, once line power is removed and the CMOS battery is missing/dead, the MEBx account resets and we lose our iAMT config. After that, we obviously can't KVM/etc to fix the machine.

How to backup Intel® MEBx bin firmware on a Desktop based on the Intel Q35 architecture?


I have two "SUN Microsystems" workstations identical but one is not able to access the Management Engine BIOS Extension (MEBx).
There's no point in which, during boot, it tells 'Press <Ctrl-P> to enter MEBx Setup', I have tried serveral reboots pressing every solitary second 'Ctrl+P' but still absolutely no way to access. I have also tried to update the BIOS version several times but still nothing.

The other identical machine works fine instead and it is showing the Ctrl-P message.

Intel AMT unreachable after power off


I've been trying to solve an issue with AMT for couple of days and have nowhere to turn anymore, so I'm trying here. 

My problem is simple: After I turn OFF PC which has AMT configured AND AFTER OS has loaded (VMware ESXi), AMT becomes unreachable.
AMT is set up with Power Policies : Desktop: ON in S0, ME Wake in S3, S4-5 active.

If I power OFF system BEFORE OS has loaded, AMT is accessible after PC has been turned OFF.

How can I look up the AMT port IO port from windows COM3 port?

Hello all, I was told this was the place to ask this sort of thing.

I want to programmatically write debugging messages to the Intel AMT virtual/fake serial port from within Intel TXT. So I can't use the AMT library.

The port shows up as COM3 in Windows (the only COM port). Is there a way to look up what the port IO port should be so I can use assembly to talk over it? I know that historically, by convention serial port 3 was at port 0x3E8, but writing to that (or any of the other conventional serial port addresses) doesn't seem to produce any output on the listening side.
