Remote Configuration of Intel AMT & vPro

Good Afternoon -

After reading an article on HowToGeek recently, I discovered that the majority of the computers in my company seem to have Intel's AMT integrated in them.  Today, I downloaded the Manageability Commander Tool from Intel, configured a new laptop to use it, then tested it out.  I like it as it seems similar to iLo.

Now that I'm interested in it, I'd like to set it up on our numerous workstations . laptops on our network.  The problem is that these computers are already deployed at our 4 major worldwide locations -however - they are still on the same domain and I'm an admin.

Is there a tool or method which will scan for these computers, then let me configure their AMT settings perhaps?  I see that the Manageability Commander Tool scans, but since I didn't recieve any results it must only scanned for configured computers.

    You will not be able to scan outside your local network - even though they are on the same domain. You will need to set up VPN in between the offices to be able to scan. OR you can open the required ports needed for AMT to scan. You can find more info here. I am quoting below the section of the page which mentioned the ports needed.

    What type of information does Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) send across the network?

    Intel AMT sends and receives data over predefined IANA network ports: port 16992 for SOAP/HTTP, port 16993 for SOAP/HTTPS, port 16994 for Redirection/TCP, and port 16995 for Redirection/TLS. DASH compliant systems will send and receive data over ports 623 for HTTP and 664 for HTTPS. The Keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) session can run either over the above redirection ports (16994 or 16995) or over the customary RFB (VNC Server) port - 5900. The type of information sent over the network includes Intel AMT command and response messages, redirection traffic, and system alerts. Data transmitted over ports 16993 and 16995 is protected with Transport-Layer Security (TLS) if that option is enabled on the user's system.
