This could be firewall, or it could also be NAT network related issue, or do you connect to the ESXi host via IP Address, or FQDN.

make sure you have good DNS resolution, even if it means creating a hosts file.

Hi Andrew,

Can you let me know where I would create a host file?

If memory serves me correctly, I think Windows already has a host file that you can add DNS to?

The hosts file is in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

add a hostname to it
