We have a vCenter Server running in Windows. I am trying to connect to the vCenter server in VMware Workstation 12 via File -> Connect to Server
With the Windows Firewall on, the connection times out and fails. When I turn off the Windows Firewall (domain profile) on the VM which hosts vCenter, the connection is successful. I have opened every port on this list on the Windows firewall, but the connection is still failing (edit - I was mistaken. TCP port 443 was still closed on the "Domain" profile). What is missing here?
EDIT: Can I use Wireshark (or similar) to run a packet-capture while I connect VMware Workstation to the vCSA 6.7 VM? I believe that would show me exactly what is blocked, which would allow me to open the appropriate ports.
