I was running into a problem trying to connect to my AMT locally using the Oupost Tool. I have solved this issue and would like to share what I had to do to make it work:
I am using a Dell Optiplex 980 (Q57 Express Chipset) running Windows 7 64-bit. I was able to connect to my AMT using the Commander Tool on a remote machine. I was also able to connect using the web browser UI.
I uninstalled all the Intel and Dell MEI drivers/programs and ran Windows Update. I then installed the suggested MEI package. Using Outpost I wen to File > Certificate Manager... and selected "Import...". I now had the option to import "Trusted Root Certificates.pem". After doing this I was able to connect locally to my AMT. Every time I restart Outpost I need to import this certificate to be able to make a good connection.
I hope this helps anyone else that runs into the same problem.
Hi Steve, Thanks for your post and thanks for sharing what you have discovered with everyone else. I'm going to pass along this post to the DTK team so they will know there was an issue and the work around found.
Oh this is interesting. When using Outpost to load a certificate, it's supposed to load it in your personnal Windows certificate store on your Windows account. So it's not loading it in any private storage Outpost has... I am going to check this... but it's supposed to stick.
