AMT and FreeBSD scripts

We have two problems with Intel AMT and FreeBSD.

First:

On AMT version: 8.1.20-build 1336 AMT stop responding about five minutes after booting FreeBSD, it's FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE, 64 bit.

On Linux AMT works fine. We suspect driver, but it's similar like on Linux.

Second:

We have shell scripts to manage computers, on version 5 (older computers) we can sending command like:

curl -m 3 --anyauth -u user:password -d amt_html_rc_radio_group=2 -d amt_html_rc_boot_special=13 http://ip:16992/remoteForm http://ip:16992/remoteForm

to power on and normal boot.

But on version 8 scripts stop working, forms are the same. Is there any changes?

Can you show us the way to resolve problems?

Hey Kamil

First off if your Linux distro is working with vPro, chances are you have a Kernal version 3.5 and up.

However in regards to FreeBSD, I have not heard of the drivers being included within the distro. You might be able to add the linux drivers, but for that you will need to ask a FreeBSD expert.

Here is some info from the Intel website:

Kamil, as for your second problem:

Intel had added new parameter (t) to those remote control form with hash related to time of session.

If you do not providing it, AMT will respond about session expiration.

I resolved it in two steps, first you should obtain page located at http://server:16992/remote.htm http://server:16992/remote.htm,

take value of variable t from this page and right after that submit your POST with curl but

adding this t value to POST parameters.

BTW in my case curl post was successful only if I use --data-urlencode instead of -d parameters.

Ok, I can leave curl... How on Linux (suported Redhat/SUSE) on/off/reset AMT from *COMMAND LINE* not web interface I want to do it massively on ~50 computers onetime. Is thre some sheel/perl/anything comman-tool in SDK or enywhere else ? Public domain amttool is not working stable. How I can reflash BIOS on ~50 computers? Do you have any tool?
