Serial Port on new ThinkPad T460

2016-08-11, 13:04 PM

I have a new ThinkPad T460 with Windows 10 Pro x64.  Under Ports (COM & LPT) Device Manager shows a Serial  Port using Intel Active Management Technology.  By right-clicking on this entry, the port can be configured like any normal serial port between 75 bbs and 128,000 bbs, I can set the word length, Partiy and number of Stop Bits.  However, there is no serial port on the machine. 


I did not expect to find a serial port on the T460 since it is not advertised as having a serial port. However, this Device Meneger entry is a surpise and quite confusing. Can anyone tell me where tis phantom serial port is located?
