Connection Error

Using EXSi 4.1 , vShpere client, trying to log into the vSphere client

getting the following error

A connection failure occurred (Unable to connect to the remote server)

If i reboot the server that vShpere Client is running on this problem goes away. Obviously this is not a solution

how often does it occur?

and the next time it occurs, login to server console, and select Network Management Agents.

also check if you can reach web pages at http:// ip address of host server

also telnet to ports 443, 22 if enabled of server

do you lose access to VMs?

what build of ESXi 4.1?
