Starting with AMT 9.0 Intel has removed support for the old SOAP

feed in what the netinfo command prints. ip is the IPv4 address,
mask the netmask, gw the default gateway, dns1 and
dns2 are the DNS Servers. If no IP configuration is specified the
tool tries to configure the machine in shared mac address mode with dhcp,
otherwise in separate mac address mode with static IP address. Default for
dns1 is the gateway address, for dns2 it is 0.0.0.0.
Special commands can optionally be specified for reset, powerup and powercycle.
