Serial-over-lan (sol) client for Intel AMT

Edit Package amtterm

AMT (included in Intel vPro and Centrino Pro) provides out-of-band
(OOB) management for Desktops and Laptops, using an agent integrated in
the network adapter and in the motherboard.

Serial-over-lan provides a (secure) way to connect a remote computer,
through a pseudo serial interface.

This package provide 2 terminals (amtterm and gamt) to connect to that
pseudo serial interface from a remote computer. amttool is a perl
script to gather informations about and remotely control AMT managed
computers.

amtterm no longer works with vPro/AMT 12.0. On my Dell Optiplex 7070 and HP 800 G5 with 12.0.0.0010/ME 12.0.39.1431 the authentication step always fails:

amtterm: NONE -> CONNECT (connection to host) ipv4 192.168.1.43 [192.168.1.43] 16994 open amtterm: CONNECT -> INIT (redirection initialization) amtterm: INIT -> AUTH (session authentication) amtterm: AUTH -> ERROR (failure) amtterm: ERROR: session authentication failed

All other tools like wsman, wsamt, amtctrl still work fine, kvm with any vnc client does, too, just amtterm doesn't.

Gerd Hoffmann, the author of amtterm, says he doesn't have time (and no vPro hardware) at the moment to look into this...
