VMware Server 2.0 on CentOS 5

Posted on 2009-04-19

Hello all,

I'm having some trouble getting VMware Server 2.0 on CentOS to work properly.  The install process (using the tarball) seems to go flawlessly, but when I attempt to access https://localhost:8333 or http://localhost:8222 the page does not load.

I have also tried the install using the RPM with the same result.

When I restart the vmware service, it appears to be loading properly... the only failure being the autostart of virtual machines (I haven't built any yet).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply  I got it... Firewall was off, but selinux was killing it.
