Access VMWARE ESXi through Internet

I setup port 443 so that I could access vmware remotely across the internet. It seemed to work when I tested it. Now that I am on the road, it seems that I can connect to my vmware server remotely and view my different vmware images. But, when I click on one to display it I cannot get the image to open so that I can view and interact with it. I hope there is not another port that needed to be opened.

What could be wrong if I can log into my vmware server, but not be able to open up the vmware images that are running? Is there anyway to fix it without RDP?

Thanks.

You will have to open port 902 too. That will let you connect to the VM's console. For more information on ports required for vSphere. check the Below KB

It seems like you need to have ports

902 TCP and 443 TCP

it's also a good idea, to setup a DNS entry to access your servers.

or, add the IP Address and Hostname to your Hosts file on your workstation.

e.g.

10.10.1.1 esxiserver
