What port do I need to open up so that I can access my VMWARE ESXi 5.5 server remotely using the ESXi 5.5 client? Port 443 is already assigned to a messaging server so I cannot use that, I don't think. What should be opened up so that I can use the client to access the ESXi server?
at least ports Ports 80, 443, 902 TCP
