Ports for VMware Web Access

Posted on 2007-10-12

I'm running an ESX server in a test environment and would like to be able to access the web interface from the WAN.  I've opened ports 443 and 902 (TCP and UDP) to my vmware server and I can get into the log in screen from outside of my LAN but anything after that gives me the following error: Cannot connect to the Virtual Machine.  It does say that "the virtual machine is on".

If I VPN into one of my VM Machines I can access everything, as I can from the LAN itself so I'm sure this is a matter of opening the right ports. Help?!

    Hi - I believe you also need 903 opened for the console.  Give that a shot.

    You may also need to open the RDP Port 3389, it's worth giving that a try
