Cannot log in to Vmware Server 2.

I can no longer log into vmware server 2 (the free one).  

I know the username and password are supposed to be the same as the admin of the PC running vmware server.  But, that does not work.

So I enabled the actual "ADministrator" account and gave it a password and rebooted.  Won't let me in with the "Administrator" account.

Created a third admin account with password.  Vmware server 2 will not let me use that to login either.

I uninstalled all antivirus software (including disabling Defender).  I even added the security certificate so that it would not shoe me the certificate error every time. And, still no luck.

What could be the problem here?

VMware Server 2 is old and not supported anymore. I would get rid of it and instead use VMware Player. You should be able to use the standalone VMware Converter (you can download that from the VMware site to move the old VM's in the player, but you should also be able to just use the old VM's with the player.

Check the VMware Services, and Apache Services.

otherwise re-install the software.
