I have installed a headless VMware server on my Linux Debian server.
For some reason I cannot connect to the web management console on port 8333. However, if I port forward localhost via ssh to the remote server (and set Firefox up to use the proxy), I can connect to the management console without problems. Using this approach I have succesfully started the virtual machine.
I can also telnet to vmware server on port 8333 when logged in on the remote server.
When I run a vmware status command, I see this message among others:
Host network detection is not running
I am not sure if this has something to do with the problem, though.
I have tried both
but that doesn't make any difference.
As far as I know, there is no firewall on the server, but to be honest I am not completely sure how to check this!
Thanks in advance for any hints that might help me solve the problem :)
This is the result of netstat:
netstat -anp | grep :8333 tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:8333 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 12850/vmware-hostd
