I have an ESX server that I am trying to connect to. I have no way to access it currently other than using some sort of port forwarding. So I am doing it with SSH. I am reaching the other end and have confidence in my port forwarding because if I change the destination port in the forward to 443 to connect to the HTTPS web interface on the ESX server it connects fine. For the vsphere client I set the destination port to 902.
When I use vsphere I use an alias for localhost which gets me past one problem with how Windows handles that. However vSphere spits out:
vSphere Client could not connect to "myalias.alias.com". The server sent the client an invalid response. (The server commited a protocol violation. Section=ResponseStatusLine)
Anyone know why this is happening. I don't think it is my forwarding unless I need to forward to additional ports beyond 902.
