Remotely connect VMWare Workstation ....
Posted on 2006-04-03
I am trying to connect to VMWare Workstation that I have on a Windows 2003 server, remotely. I have the console client from VMWare Server but unfortunately only Workstation supports multiple snapshots, and that's the functionality that I require so VMWare Server doesn't work for us.
Anyways... I want developers to be able to connect to the VMWare instance so they can take snapshots, start and stop the VMWare session etc... however, I don't want to give them access to the desktop, or command line. I have tried doing this with VNC, and sharing a single window -- but if you minimize the window it gets all screwed up and unusable.
I am wondering if there is a way to connect to the VMWare Workstation remotely, not sharing the desktop or command line, or access to any software etc...
Any help is appreciated. Since this is a toughie, I'm giving a lot of points, but I need a good explanation :)
