After searching the forums, I selected this one for my question.

If I need to move it to another please instruct,

Thank you.

 

I need to access a remote PC through vPro or some other means to be able to start it up when it has blue screened or is otherwise stuck in bios.

All I have at the site is a router and wondering if a VPN would work.

I currently use TeamViewer and a IP Power switch to access the PC with the AC Power Recovery set to on but when the machine requires a keystroke to get it out of bios after a malfunction, even a power off and on does me little good.

I would welcome any suggestions to help me identify the means of accomplishing this as I still have much to learn about remote networking solutions.

Thank you,

Scott

Your issue is at the hardware level.  If stuck at a bios F1/delete there is nothing remotely I know of that you can use to address this.  After all software can't make the F1/delete go away nor can it access the device until it gets past the hang.  This assumes a standalone unit with its own keyboard.

 

Now if connected to a KVM you just need a kvm that supports remote access or you have another pc you can remote into that can run the kvm software to connect to the hung device.
