Several of my clients have Dell Latitudes with built-in Intel AMT and I wanted to know if it is possible to configure the Intel AMT so that the PC can be controlled remotely.  I've been able to access power options and the bios using RAdmin viewer but have not been able to access the desktop. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

This is a good question, we have HP servers that present the screen including the POST etc via the web browser, so e.g. if the XP CD is in the drive we can press a key to start the XP install, I'm wondering whether AMT provides something similar.

Dell support is really good, you should try phoning them, if you do please post back the results as I want to implement this soon as well!

Thank you all for your comments. After further research I found that Intel ATM does not facilitate remote desktop connections.  Intel AMT works in conjunction with network and systems management software like Kaseya or N-central.  The technical specs/overview are misleading when discussing the "remote access" capabilities.  Intel ATM only works in conjunction with other monitoring/remote control software.

Ok, this might be useful as a FREE client http://www.radmin.com/products/radmin/intel_amt_features.php as it offers the essentials like cold boot, BIOS control etc, after pc is booted you can always use RDP or something else rolled out via group policy.
