Unable to connect to VMWare Host

Hi EE,

For some odd reason, I cannot connect to my virtual host, it would not reply by PING nor would not accept my connection via vSphere.

This issue happened only after I've installed ISA 2010 (FTMG) so I suspect it is related to it?

But, I  have ISA 2004 running as virtual machine which is acting as firewall which was installed since day one and never had issue with my virtual host particularly connecting to it via vSphere. I can RDP to my virtual hosts which are also reply by ping.

Appreciate your help.

To access a vSphere host you need to have 80, 443 and 902 TCP ports open.

so, use

telnet < ip address> 80
telnet < ip address> 443
telnet < ip address> 902

can you connect, if not open those ports on the firewall

I cannot connect to ISA 2010 since it just installed but not configured. I can only access it through vSphere client but I cannot connect to the host.

What's the command to delete the vm isa 2010 through CLI using Putty?

Can you shutdown the ISA 2010 VM, via RDP?
