We have a unique situation in which requires us to create a url for users outside our organization to access an ESX server and manage a set of VM's for testing purposes.  Is this something vmware could provide as an addon or not?  Would anyone have any links as to how this could be accomplished.  I am a little fuzzy on connecting the dots to get the system sucurie from the outside to the v-sphere agent.

This is possible using the vSphere Web Client, when you use the additional VMware vSphere vCenter Server .

see here, a trial is available for 60 days.

http://www.vmware.com/uk/products/vcenter-server/

The basic level, VMware vSphere Essentials, includes VMware vCenter Server license, and also 3 licenses for 2 processor ESXi servers for approx $500.

As for the installation of vCenter Server for Windows, see here
