Hello,

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?

Thanks.

This is an older article but the concept should be the same for newer versions:

You should be able to change it to whatever you want but by default it uses 443.

at least ports Ports 80, 443, 902 TCP

otherwise you will have to change your ESXi server configuration.
