Hello Experts,

I have gone ahead and purchased a VMware service as suggested by an Expert here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_28544181.html

I would like to install an emulator onto the VMware server as described here:

http://www.viktorious.nl/2014/05/14/building-virtual-cisco-nexus-lab-vsphere/

Being a complete novice to VMware ESXi 5.5 I thought I would be able to access the server via a GUI, but at the moment I  can only access it via SSH.

Can someone please help?

Cheers

Andrew,

Is it possible to download an evaluation copy of the vSphere client?

The link is available from your Host ESXi server.

The vSphere Client is a free download. It's just a GUI Client.
