    Where/how to download vmware-server-console


    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64 - Host OS
    vmware-mui-distrib-1.0.4-56528
    vmware-server-distrib-1.0.4-56528


    I have both VMWare-mui and VMWare-server installed on /usr/local/src/

    They are now running. Both of them can be started on Console/Terminal, NO GUI.


    I follow following document;
    How to obtain, secure, install, monitor and log in to VMware's MUI using Linux
    How to obtain, secure, install, monitor and log in to VMware's MUI using Linux

    to proceed.


    Coming to "VMware Server Console" on the same document, re Downlaod;


    I can't resolve how "to obtain the bits for the VMware Server Console. Just point a Web browser at the VMware Server, https://MGMT_NIC_IP:8333/ and the Web page that comes up will present you with a drop-down menu that lists the different versions of the VMware Server console. Select the version for Linux that is labeled "VMware Server Console for Linux (tar.gz)""

    MGMT-NIC_IP is the IP address of the server. Please help me to understand what is "Just point a Web browser at the VMware Server, https://MGMT_NIC_IP:8333/".

    TIA

    this means if you are on the machine running vmware, open a web browser and go to https://localhost:8333/
    if that machine has no gui or you need to access it from another machine open a web browser and go to https://your_vmware_machine_IP:8333/

    Tks for your advice.

    I have problem running;

    $ telnet vmware_machine_IP 8333
    Code:
    Trying vmware_machine_IP...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
    $ telnet vmware_machine_IP
    Code:
     
    Trying vmware_machine_IP...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
    Which file shall I check and how to fix the problem? TIA

    Is there a firewall enabled on this system?

    Yes, on "Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64", the Host OS.

    $ cat /etc/rc.local
    Code:
    #
    # INPUT
    #
    
    # allow all incoming traffic from the management interface NIC
    # as long as it is a part of an established connection
    iptables -I INPUT 1 -j ACCEPT -d MGMT_NIC_IP -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
    
    # allow all ssh traffic to the management interface NIC
    iptables -I INPUT 2 -j ACCEPT -p TCP -d MGMT_NIC_IP --destination-port 22
    
    # allow all VMware MUI HTTP traffic to the management interface NIC
    iptables -I INPUT 3 -j ACCEPT -p TCP -d MGMT_NIC_IP --destination-port 8222
    
    # allow all VMware MUI HTTPS traffic to the management interface NIC
    iptables -I INPUT 4 -j ACCEPT -p TCP -d MGMT_NIC_IP --destination-port 8333
    
    # allow all VMware Authorization Daemon traffic to the management interface NIC
    iptables -I INPUT 5 -j ACCEPT -p TCP -d MGMT_NIC_IP --destination-port 902
    
    # reject all other traffic to the management interface NIC
    iptables -I INPUT 6 -j REJECT -d MGMT_NIC_IP --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable
    
    
    #
    # OUTPUT
    #
    
    # allow all outgoing traffic from the management interface NIC
    # if it is a part of an established connection
    iptables -I OUTPUT 1 -j ACCEPT -s MGMT_NIC_IP -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
    
    # allow all DNS queries from the management interface NIC
    iptables -I OUTPUT 2 -j ACCEPT -s MGMT_NIC_IP -p UDP --destination-port 53
    
    # reject all other traffic from localhost
    iptables -I OUTPUT 3 -j REJECT -s 127.0.0.1 --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable
    
    # reject all other traffic from the management interface NIC
    iptables -I OUTPUT 4 -j REJECT -s MGMT_NIC_IP --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable
    MGMT_NIC_IP=server_IP (fixed IP)

    I'm following this article;
    How to configure and secure Linux for VMware

    to build a virtual machine. Ubuntu server can connect and browse Internet w/o problem
