KVM Remote Control is certainly one of vPro's most compelling features. The challenge is how to use it if your favorite management console does not support it. Fortunately RealVNC created VNC Viewer Plus with just this in mind. They are compatible with almost any configuration setting one can apply to AMT. So, I wanted to share with this community a new Use Case Reference Design that steps readers through how to use VNC Viewer Plus with vPro when AMT has been configured by Config Manager: http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-6035.

 

This UCRD covers the basics like settings required to connect and advanced topics like AMT configuration for help desk level credentials. It builds on other UCRDs, creating a framework for taking advantage of KVM Remote Control. And, finally, it provides reusable concepts that could be applied to any KVM Remote Control Capable viewer just in case Viewer Plus is not your cup of tea. So, check it out and let me know what you think. Is there value in UCRDs that help with features that are not natively supported by a management console? Does this UCRD have the right level of detail help with a successful deployment? What other UCRD topics would you like to see?
