Still no luck.

what is meant with "active the network p"?

I have linked both machines directly with fixed ips.

I enabled the following settings on the x201: Username&Password (also tried 
to disable it, but no change), SOL, IDER, Legacy Redirection Mode, KVM,

    AMT_PASSWORD=<your password> amttool info
gave only: '401 Unauthorized at /usr/bin/amttool line 126'
    echo $AMT_PASSWORD
showed nothing.

In a root console i can set and get with echo the passwort.

But also in root console it fails with same error.

I looked in the AMTTOOL script. In the script i changed the user to the one 
i created in the web ui. Also nothing changed.

Funnily i can do the following:

    amtterm -u admin -p 'verysecretpasswortNarf!'
    amtterm -u specialuser -p 'Test4ls!'

this says that redirection is okay. So username seems to be correct, but 
there is no conenction with amttool

Oh, and it does not work if i enter the paswort manually, only with quotes 
and parameter -p.

At the moment I'm a little bit frustrated by AMT.

Finally the following worked to get the amttool working: I har coded the 
passowrd in the AMTTOOL script.
Security at it's best...

So thanks for the direction. The thing with the script i try over the long 

Best regards,

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.
