Subject: Radmin Viewer 3.3 – Remote Management Software with Intel® AMT Support

Radmin Viewer 3.3 supports Intel® AMT (Active Management Technology) and allows the manipulating of a remote computer even if it’s turned off or you cannot start its operating system. Using Radmin Viewer you can turn on, restart and shut down the remote computer. It also enables the user to view and change the BIOS settings of the remote computer and to boot it from a local CD or disk image file. Radmin Viewer is a freeware software that provides the AMT functionality for free.

Intel® AMT Features in Radmin Viewer 3.3

Cold Restart

Radmin can restart a remote computer even if the operating system is not responding. Cold restarting brings the remote computer back from a ‘hang’ caused by a ‘Blue Screen’ error state, network configuration failures or any other problems.


Turn On

Radmin can turn on a remote computer if its power cord is plugged in. This is very helpful for companies in which the employees often tend to switch computers off. A system administrator can remotely turn on a computer using Intel® AMT, connect to it using Radmin’s Full Control mode and perform administrative tasks.


Cold Turn Off

Radmin can turn off a remote computer even if its operating system is not responding. This feature is helpful if the remote computer is not directly accessible.


BIOS Remote Control

With Intel® AMT technology Radmin can reboot a remote computer into BIOS and work with the computer’s BIOS settings remotely. This functionality enables remote troubleshooting of hardware problems, setting boot device priority or fine-tuning motherboard settings.


Startup Remote Control

Radmin can reboot a remote computer and take control of its text mode boot process. The user can view text messages on the boot screen or activate advanced motherboard features like RAID controller settings. The user can also interact with the operating system’s startup screen by hitting the F8 key and then selecting the operating system’s startup options such as ‘safe mode’ or ‘last known good configuration’.


Network Boot

One of the most exciting Intel® AMT features supported by Radmin is the remote network boot. Radmin Viewer enables the remote computer to boot from a local computer’s CDROM/ floppy drive or ISO/floppy image file. The entire boot process is interactive and keyboard keys are sent directly to the remote computer. This functionality also enables you to use a recovery console, perform maintenance, use software that boots from a CD-Rom like memtest or install an operating system remotely.

Radmin Viewer is the client module of Radmin – popular remote control software that allows to access and operate remote computers remotely via Internet or LAN.
