Radmin Viewer supports the following Intel® AMT operations:
Restart the remote computer by using the remote computers physical On/Off button. This is the physical button on the remote computers case that turns on/off the electricity to the computer. AMT can send a command to the remote computer that turns this On/Off button off, then on again.
The AMT Cold Restart command is sent directly to the electronics of the remote computer bypassing the remote computers operating system, so all unsaved data will be lost, exactly the same as turning the remote computers On/Off power button.
This turns on the remote computers On/Off switch.
This turns off the remote computers On/Off power button.
If the remote computers operating system is running it will not receive this 'shutdown' command and all unsaved data will be lost.
This AMT command restarts the remote computer into its BIOS. This operation opens a terminal window that shows the remote computers boot up and BIOS screens and enables you to send keyboard commands to the remote computer as it boots up.
This restarts the remote computer and opens a terminal window that shows the remote computers boot sequence and enables you to send keyboard commands to the remote computer as it boots up.
This AMT command restarts the remote computer and boots it from a specified local CD-Rom or floppy (on the computer you are using to connect to the remote computer) or disk image file. This operation opens a terminal window that shows the remote computers boot sequence and enables you to send keyboard commands to the remote computer as it boots up.

This selects the font used on your local computers monitor to display the remote computers screen.
In 'VT100+' mode the remote computers screen will be displayed using only English characters. In 'VT100-UTF8' mode the remote computers screen will be displayed with International characters support, but English characters and pseudographics could be displayed incorrectly.
