As it’s been cold and snowing in Oregon for the past few days, a great time to catch up on code releases and fixes. As part of catching up, I released MeshCommander 0.4.3 with plenty of bug fixes and the addition of Intel® AMT Alarm Clock support. MeshCommander can now help administrators manage wake events within Intel® AMT that cause the computer to wake up regardless of the network connectivity state. In many cases, instead of sending a wake command to Intel® AMT, it’s more practical to setup the wake even ahead of time and just have Intel® AMT perform the wake operation on its own. I would like to thank Joko Sastriawan for this work on this feature in MeshCommander, he is the one that got the feature started and fully working for the first time.
In addition to this, I have made many more fixes in MeshCommander to improve its robustness. Fixes range from improved HTTP pipelining to IDER timers and certificate checking improvements. Speaking of certificates, we also posted a new tutorial video explaining how to setup Intel® AMT with TLS. The new certificate management system built-into MeshCommander makes this super easy to do and it improves the security of your remote management operations a huge amount. If you have not setup Intel® AMT in TLS mode before, I recommend looking at the YouTube video on this topic. Other videos are also available on the MeshCommander tutorials page.
Feel free to get the latest version at http://meshcommander.com. As usual, feedback is appreciated.
Starting with this version MeshCommander, there is a new “Wake Alarms” tab on the left side.
You can use this tab to add, edit and manage all your Intel® AMT wake events.
