Hi, i have a vSphere system with 2 connected host.

Both are behind a firewall and they connect perfectly to the vSphere system.

now i want to connect a 3rd host to this vSphere. I added the host with his public ip adres. when connected to the vSpere it connects and after a few seconds i disconnects again. Now the vSphere has a message that has been disconnected. Even when that ip adres is not the public nor the local ip address. When i add the host with the local adres from behind the firewall the same thing happens after few seconds. he disconnects and displays a disconnected host...

any idea's?
