Hello Experts

After firing up my Windows 7 VM at my office the console is show a blank black screen. However, when I power up the same VM from home I'm able to view the Windows 7 VM.

Can someone please tell me what is causing this?


Cheers

Carlton

Check if Port 902 (TCP) is being blocked.

Disable your Firewall.

Hi Andrew,

Its funny should mention letting in 902, because that was the problem when I was trying upload file to datastore. I let allow through the fire and I was now able to upload.

Now, I'm looking at our firewall to see if anything is being blocked and nothing is being blocked.

I also disabled the firewall on my PC and still getting blank screen

I'm going to restart my PC. In the meantime, any other ideas?

Sorry missed this one.

Have you got good DNS resolution, and reverse DNS?
