Hi All,

I've just upgraded my ESXi 4.0 into 4.1 and then when I'm about to connect to the server using my existing vsphere client it failed like the following:

The required client support files cannot be retrieved from the server "vsphereclient.vmware.com". The login process will now exit.
*Details: The request failed because of a connection failure. (Unable to connect to the remote server*)

how can i manually download this VSphere Client from the web ? or is there any proxy information that i should put / edit in the XML file somewhere ?

thanks,
JJ

You can download the client from your vmware server by navigating to it's ip using your browser.

I have met the same issue. After re-installed, the problem still exists. I have checked the ping connection with "vsphereclient.vmware.com" successfully. Is any port issue?
