This looks like that the run script doesn't recognize that you wanted to
use Intel's AMT. Can you please have a look (or post the log) in the log
for something like "No support for Intel's AMT detected."

Make sure that you also have enabled in the AMT menu an option called
"Legacy redirection mode" - without we had no luck to get SOL working
and that you "active the network p

The best is first to try and to get the amttool and amtterm working in
general. For example try

user> AMT_PASSWORD=<your password> amttool powerup
user> AMT_PASSWORD=<your password> amttool reset
user> AMT_PASSWORD=<your password> amttool powerdown

in a shell. If this works our run script support should be able to reset
the machine (we use only "reset" - so you have to power on the machine
by your own before using it.)

If this works amtterm can be invoked by

user> amtterm -u admin -p <your password>

and should give you a connection.
