    Unable to access port 16993


      This is my first time configuring Out of Band management and I need some assistant.  I've spent hours searching forums, but something is still not clicking.  I can't not access the web console on port 16993 which ConfigMgr\SCCM is requiring.  I'm under the impression if HTTP works, then HTTPS should just work as well.  Here are the most recent steps I have been trying.



      HP Folio 9470m with an Intel i7 vPro CPU running Windows 8.1 x64

      Computer is domain joined

      Latest Intel ME firmware from hp.com has been installed

      All drivers installed, including the two chipset drivers on hp.com

      Intel Management Engine Components Driver

      Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) Driver

      I've also try the Intel ME: Management Engine driver on intel.com

      Single subnet

      Wireless network adapter is disabled in Windows

      No hardware firewalls and Windows firewall is disabled everywhere

      Windows Server Datacenter 2012 R2 running ConfigMgr 2012 R2

      ConfigMgr is functioning in HTTPS only mode

      Clients are communicating  with servers and have no certificate issues

      Windows Server Datacenter 2012 R2 running Active Directory Services and DHCP

      DHCP option 6 & 15 are set

      DNS dynamic updates are allowed

      Windows Server Datacenter 2012 R2 running Certificate Services

      CRL is functioning



      Configuration Steps performed on the client computer

      1. Remove and replace the CMOS battery to clear ME configuration
      2. Enter the Intel MEBx default password (“admin”).
      3. Change the default password to a new value.
      4. Select Intel(R) AMT Configuration.
      5. Select Manageability Feature Selection.
        1. Select ENABLED to enable Intel(R) AMT.
      6. Select SOL/IDE-R/KVM and enable all of these features.
        1. Enabling Legacy Redirection Mode.
      7. Select User Consent
        1. Select desired options for KVM and Remote IT operations.
      8. Enter Network Setup to enter network preferences for the Intel ME.
      9. Enter Activate Network Access to enable Intel AMT.
      10. Exit to the Main Menu.
      11. Select MEBx Exit to continue booting your system.
      12. Once booted into Windows, I wait several minutes for all the services to start
      13. Open Intel Management and Security Status application
      14. Under the General tab, verify Intel AMT = Enabled
      15. Under the Advanced tab, verify status is configured and admin mode is displayed



      Verification steps taken on the ConfigMgr server

      Verify I can browse http;//<computer fqdn>:16992.  This works successfully.  I'm able to login and browse around the different hardware information.

      Verify I can browse https://<computer fqdn>:16993

      This is where it fails.  I get page cannot be displayed using 16993.




      Ping <computer fqdn> and verify LAN IP is returned along with replies.

      Telnet <computer fqdn> 16993 which fails

      Ran netstat -a on the client.  16992 is listed. 16993 is not.
