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 (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,
