    Serial over LAN and IDER!

    Serial over LAN and Integrated Device Electronics Redirection (IDER)

    HI guys

    i am trying to completely understand the concept of serial over LAN and IDER....
    how it works
    any links or tutorials... even long hard ones , I am ready to read

    i did a search in google, but i feel that i need someone to help me in this

    i am particulary trying to understand the following :

    "Consider this scenario: A client PC in a field sales office just won’t boot; its OS has been damaged by a virus or misbehaved installation. A technician located at the corporate
    Headquarters hundreds of miles away sits at a remote management console and uses Serial over LAN to change the boot device to a CD or to a CD image that is located on
    his machine or another remote machine, allowing the client to boot from a Microsoft Windows* CD......"

    "keyboard and text redirection (known as Serial over LAN) and full CD or floppy redirection, referred to as Integrated Device Electronics Redirection (IDER). "...

    i will be great thanksful if u help me in this
    it is part of the INTEL Active Management Technology research i am doing...
    10x a lot in advance

    umm...
    looks that no one knows the answer...

    i thought this is one of the best tech communities ....
    maybe i think i was a bit wrong... not one of the elite communities...
    only easy, and intermediate questions are answered :P
    okey.. will the search on my own guys ... i will get that answer.. )

    for me this is a bad point for anti online

    I'd answer your question if you asked one. The only real thing you refer to is you would like information on what these are, and directly quoted from you above, where you quoted from intel I think you answered your own question.

    SoL allows you to view text from another console, such as bios screens. This makes it seem like you are sitting right in front of the machine that is far far away. I looks to be more telnet based, but none the less works the same. This is very similar to remote desktop or VNC I would assume.

    IDER just redirects what the remote computer thinks is its floppy or CD drive. A remote tech can make a users computer think that the techs CD drive is its own, and thus stick some media in his own drive that he wants to load on that remote machine. This in turn re-directs it to the remote machine.

    If this doesn't aid you, maybe some specific questions are in order.

    first of all thank you for your reply

    i got the general meaning of SOL and IDER, but i need the details, to know how they work
    like SOL is telnet based
    do u know those tutorial that explain about the TCP/IP.. they tell the boring detail.. my dream is to find something that explains this to me like that?

    how the exchange of info is done. what information is exchanged. what protocols are involved
    is SoL a protocol ? is there any technical paper, tutorial about what is serial over lan

    remote tech can make a users computer think that the techs CD drive is its own
    how it makes him think that?
    how the communication over the network happens ...
    i can understand sharing a cd data, but "fool the computer" that is weird
    what packets are being sent to make him think that

    well if you help me in this i promise one day i will pay you back!
