I wanted to share with you a tool I use for our Advertise Me work called MeshCommander. It’s an open-source tool to manage Intel AMT devices. Now we use Intel NUCs for our digital signage players and we always prefer to use a digital signage device that allows us to remotely manage even when the operating system is not working. We have had instances where our clients’ digital signage players were stuck at the BIOS or we couldn’t remotely connect to it via a remote management tool so using the Intel AMT KVM feature got us out of trouble on a number of occasions.

We previously had to use trial version of VNC Viewer Plus KVM viewer and it’s a bit expensive so when I came across MeshCommander I wanted to share it with you all.

The main features that I use from MeshCommander are:

  • Check the system status

  • Remote Desktop KVM

  • Check logs of when the system was rebooted

The only issue that I discovered with MeshCommander (not sure if the same issue has with VNC Viewer Plus) but if there is no display connected to the device then the Remote Desktop screen is black. Now besides this issue, I really hope others use this tool. So go check it out.
