vSphere Client. You can connect to the IP through a browser of the vcenter server and download the client

That is where you can access it through the console. Once there, you can enable RDP or some other remote connection to remote to it from normal.

You can either connect using RDP, or use the vSphere Client you've already installed, and use the Option Open Console

If you mean you installed ESX/i and created a VM on that what you do is either download/install the vSphere Client on the workstation you want to access the VM from (go to http://IPofESXiHost and download the vSphere Client), or you can simply use RDP to remote in to the VM (assuming it's a Windows OS.

Once you have the vSphere Client installed, type the IP of your ESXi host, then log in with "root" credentials. Or, if you installed vCenter Server, enter the hostname or IP of the vCenter Server and log in with the admin credentials you installed vCenter with. Once logged in, you can setup login credentials with AD if you wish.
