I have an ESXi lab at home running a few servers and clients. I'd like to be able to access ESXi via vSphere client remotely to work on labs from the road. Is there something like this available? Something like GoToMyPC?

Install TeamViewer on a PC, which is running as a VM on your Lab.

Install vSphere Client and Web Browser to Access Web Client, and then use Teamviewer for free to connect to the PC.

http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx

It's free for personal use.

You could also access the web Client remotely via a web browser, with the correct ports setup, yuo can also access the ESXi server using the vSphere Client, with Port Forwarding on your router, but this is rather dangerous and prone to attack!

If you have vCenter deployed, you could use The webclient but a VPN Connection to your home network would be a good idea. In you have a VPN you can also use The vsphere client.
