Unable to access port 16993


This is my first time configuring Out of Band management and I need some assistant. I've spent hours searching forums, but something is still not clicking. I can't not access the web console on port 16993 which ConfigMgr\SCCM is requiring. I'm under the impression if HTTP works, then HTTPS should just work as well. Here are the most recent steps I have been trying.

Computer is domain joined

Latest Intel ME firmware from has been installed

All drivers installed, including the two chipset drivers on

Intel Management Engine Components Driver

Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Driver

I've also try the Intel ME: Management Engine driver on

Single subnet

Wireless network adapter is disabled in Windows

No hardware firewalls and Windows firewall is disabled everywhere

Windows Server Datacenter 2012 R2 running ConfigMgr 2012 R2

ConfigMgr is functioning in HTTPS only mode

Clients are communicating with servers and have no certificate issues

Verification steps taken on the ConfigMgr server

Verify I can browse http;//:16992. This works successfully. I'm able to login and browse around the different hardware information.

Verify I can browse https://%3ccomputer/ https:// fqdn>:16993

This is where it fails. I get page cannot be displayed using 16993.


Ping and verify LAN IP is returned along with replies.

Telnet 16993 which fails

Ran netstat -a on the client. 16992 is listed. 16993 is not.
