MPS Configuration Parameters

The following table lists the MPS configuration parameters:

Parameter

Description

Network Parameters

AMTListenIP

IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) or FQDN that the MPS listens to for Intel AMT connections. It is the address the tunneling proxy uses to forward connections from the Intel AMT platform. When the tunneling proxy runs on the same platform as the MPS, this will be the local host. (See the stunnel connect configuration parameter.)

AMTListenPort

TCP port in connections from Intel AMT platforms to the MPS via a tunneling proxy. This port number must match the port used by the tunneling proxy to forward Intel AMT platform connections. (See the stunnel connect configuration parameter).

SocksListenIP

This is the (IPv4 or IPv6) address or FQDN of the network interface of the server where the MPS executes that faces the intranet. It is the address that the MPS listens to for new SOCKS connection requests.

SocksListenPort

Port used in SOCKSv5 connections from redirection applications or socksified traffic from proxy server.

HttpListenIP

IP (IPv4 or IPv6) or FQDN address that the MPS listens to for new HTTP connection requests.

HttpListenPort

Port used in HTTP/S proxy connections from management consoles. This is the port used in notification messages as the MPS HTTP port. Console applications address their HTTP traffic to Intel AMT platforms via this port. The proxy server listens on this port and forwards to the MCSocksListenPort.

SOAPListenIP

IP or FQDN address that the MPS listens to for new SOAP connection requests. Used for the MPSInterface command.

SOAPListenPort

Port that the MPS listens to for new SOAP connection requests.

Logger Parameters

LogFilePath

Path to the directory where the log file will be created – relative to the local directory or an absolute path.

LogFileName

The name of the log file.

LogFileMaxSize

Maximum size of a log file, in Kbytes. When this size is reached, the MPS appends a digit to the file name and starts a new log file For example, if LogFileName is MPS.log, the filename will be changed to MPS.log.1. The next full file will be MPS.log.2, and so on.

LogFileMaxFiles

The maximum number of log files created and maintained. When this number is reached, the next log file will overwrite the oldest log file.

TraceLevels

Level of messages to be logged. The options are “INFO”, “ERROR”, and “WARNING”, or any combination. Combine multiple selections by separating them with a “|” character. For example, “INFO|ERROR|WARNING”. This parameter can be changed dynamically and is set in mps_dynamic.config, not in mps.config.

AMT_Authenticate Parameters

NeedAuthentication

true: The MPS will call the dll defined below to authenticate the User ID and password in connections from Intel AMT devices.

false: The MPS will not perform authentication.

DllName

The dll used for authentication; required if NeedAuthentication is true.

DllParameters

Command line parameters to pass to the dll. The sample dll that uses file authentication requires parameters to locate the file (e.g., “-file <path to file\filename>”

Socks_Authenticate Parameters

NeedAuthentication

true: The MPS will call the dll defined below to authenticate the User ID and password in Socks connections from consoles.

false: The MPS will not perform authentication.

DllName

The dll used for authentication; required if NeedAuthentication is true.

DllParameters

Command line parameters to pass to the dll. The sample dll that uses file authentication requires parameters to locate the file (e.g., “-file <path to file\filename>”

Notification_Authentication Parameters

NeedNotificationAuthentication

true: The MPS will send the username and password defined below to authenticate to management consoles when notifying them of new or closed Intel AMT tunnels.

false: The MPS will not authenticate to consoles.

Username

Value used in a notification authentication response

Password

Value used in a notification authentication response

SOAP_Authentication Parameters

NeedAuthentication

true: Connection authentication data is required for a SOAP connection

false: The MPS will not perform authentication on a SOAP connection.

DllName

The dll used for authentication; required if NeedAuthentication is true.

DllParameters

Command line parameters to pass to the dll.

Filtering Parameters

FilterUnauthorizedServers

Defines processing of direct connections.

true: the MPS will check AuthorizedServers.config to see if the target address of a direct connection orUDP message is listed there. If it is not, the message will be dropped.

false: Direct connection or UDP messages will be forwarded unconditionally.

Management Interface Parameters

MaxEnumElements

The maximum number of elements that will be sent in a response to a Pull request.

EnumCtxTimeout

The duration of the validity of an enumeration context, in seconds.

MaxConcurrentEnums

The number of concurrent enumerations that are allowed.

MaxSubscribers

The maximum number of subscribers that are allowed.
