Not really simple you will need to login to thebhost using SSH.

And then modify files using vi.

I am in SSH - which file :: what are the detailed instructions. Also in VCenter - if all are using the same ports how can I connect to multiple ESX behind a firewall?

The link is broken. . .also regarding that vcenter question. If I have 5 esx servers behind a fireall and all use 902, 903 , 443 how will Vcenter access them all?

see here

Changing the port used by the vSphere Client to connect directly to the ESX/ESXi host (1021199)

Why do you want to change the ports ?

You have vCenter installed at one location, and all the ESXi servers are behind a firewall at another ?

You will need to ensure firewall rules pass the correct ports for management.

I thought Vcenter would have some meta-vcenter which would connect all vcenters around the WAN...so if I have 3 WAN.. and behind that 3 ESX on LANS .. how can I connect the WANS together?

Networking and Routing will connect the WANs together. That's another question.
