Seems like the ESXi box is taking over port 80 before its reaching my virtual machine. I have configured my apache correctly and inside the LAN works fine. I get the test page.

When I forward the router port 80 it's picking the welcome to ESX test page.

Is that some setting?

This should not occur, because your ESXi Host has a different IP Address, to your Virtual Machine.

e.g. ESXi host has an IP Address and MAC Address which is unique, and your virtual machine has an IP Address and MAC Address which is unique.

Are you using the VM IP Address, and not the ESXi IP Address?

Okay, check the following:-

What is the IP Address of the VM?

What is the IP Address of ESXi ?

if you use

telnet <IP address> 443

telnet <IP address> 902

does it respond ?

please upload screenshots of your networking ?

After much research I need to do the following. The ESX seems to be managed by port 80 and 443. I need to CHANGE those ports. How can I do that?

I did ask you to post responses to my last questions?

That is correct, the ESX server doers use Ports 80 and 443, BUT ESX server and your VM have different IP Addresses!

ESX cannot possibly answer a request on Port 80 and 443, if you are using your VM IP Address.

Please post the IP Address of

1. ESX Server

2. Your VM

The ESX server with IP Address 192.168.1.1 Port 80 and 443 cannot respond if your VM IP Address is 192.168.1.2!

Please post screenshots of networking

and screenshots of your VM, with VMware Tools running.

Also please post a screenshot of your browser with the IP Address of your VM IP Address.

Are you trying to ACCESS this VM Externally ?

Use the IP Address of the VM, and not the ESX server.

ARE YOU FORWARDING THE CORRECT IP ADDRESS OF THE VIRTUAL MACHINE APACHE SERVER AND NOT ESX HOST SERVER?

Even in your articles you discuss CONSOLE access. But how does vmware tools help if you simply always remote into the machine?

Great articles by the way!

Thanks for your kind words....

How are you "remoting into the VM"

from my EE Article

VMware Tools works in the OS, does not matter how to you access it!

If you have not installed VMware Tools - You need to install them!

What are VMware Tools?

VMware Tools are a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine's guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine. Installing the VMware Tools package will greatly enhance graphics and mouse performance in your virtual machine. Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, guest performance lacks important functionality. You can check if you have VMware Tools installed by checking the Summary of your virtual machine using the vSphere Client if using VMware vSphere 4.x or 5.x, or ESX/ESXi 4.x, 5.x. If VMware Tools are installed VMware Tools will read OK, an IP Address and DNS hostname will appear in the Summary page.
