VMWare ESX 4, send url to remote control workstation

Hi,

Just a simple question. Where in VMWare ESX 4 can you send a "remote url" in order to give access to a vmware machine via a browser?

Thanks,
J.

I think what you're wanting to use is VMware Web Access. See the Admin Guide here:
http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r40/vsp_40_web_access.pdf.

The URL is http://hostnameOrIPAddress/ui

The Guide explains how to give access to a VM to a particular user.

The Web Access service isn't running by default. You will need to start it first.

Pg. 62 of the Guide tells how to get the Service started for both the host and/or vCenter.

If you are using ESXi 4.x Web Access is not supported, you will need a vCenter Server.
