Finally got the x201 you supposed and tried to configure amt.

I tried the following:
on the x201 enable AMT, setup a new user wolfgang with password and enable
SOL. I set a IP4 adress of With the username and password i can
log into the AMT web site of the computer.

On a hp i tried the commands from
http://genode.org/documentation/release-notes/13.05 (On the client i
installed amtterm 1.3 from repository.)
export AMT_TEST_MACHINE_PWD=Test$$44$$ (yep i know, but the machine cannot
connect to the outside world)

and tried
RUN_OPT="--target amt" make run/printf

The x201 does not seem to get touched - even with disconnected network cable
the test is succesful.

I honestly does not understand amt. I tried to use amtterm instead to try
out the connection. With amtterm i get a "amtterm: AUTH - ERROR (failure)
amtterm: ERROR: session authentification failed". I know that amtterm has
nothing to do with genode directly, but if you are using it could you give a
hint for the right direction?

Best regards,
