Thread: VMWare client?

  1. #1

    Default VMWare client?

    OK, I need to "connect" to a VMware server (or is it a client? I have no idea) Is there a way I can do this for free without buying something from VMware?

    Should have a web interface as well as a client interface. At least some products do. What exactly ate you connecting to ie what VMware product?

    Connect to an existing and running vmware server? You just need Firefox.

    please be clearer about what it is you are trying to do..

    from where/what do you want to "connect" to where/what, and why..

    reading more in the VMWare documentation will at least get you to the
    point where you will have some idea of _what_ to ask..

    and, this link will help you on _how_ to ask it: http://is.gd/2BfI3

    I suspect that the OP doesn't understand what VMware is.

    In a nutshell, most people are familiar with installing and running computer OS and software on hardware, you pop a CD/DVD in the tray, answer some questions during the automated install and when you're done you have a running computer ready to do your bidding.

    VMware is one of many similar apps which enable installing a computer into a virtualized instance running separately and on top of the hardware, enabling multiple computing machines to run simultaneously on a single box (hardware) where originally only one could run at a time.

    If you understand that a virtualized machine running in something like VMware appears to the world like an ordinary install on hardware, then you will also understand you access it hardly any differently than the ordinary install except when accessing from the same physical machine.

    A quick left field guess at what you might want is based on what VMware product is running, if it truly is "VMware Server" there is a speciic web-based client you can download for free from VMware for the purposes of administering the VM, but is not necessary for simple "connecting." You can also use any type of remoting tool (GUI or CLI) to simply connect to a running VM.
