Need Support for VMWare "Remote Console"

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

It seems that there is an application missing from the VMWare session called "Remote Console".
It allows for connections to a virtual machine's console through the internet.
Here is what the shortcut looks like:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VMware\VMware Remote Console Plug-in\vmware-vmrc.exe" -h xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8333 -M 16
The -h is to specify the host.
The -M is to specify which virtual machine to connect to.
I tried using other sessions but I could find none that worked. Maybe someone knows something I could try in the meantime?

Hi David,
I was not aware of the add-on. It works very well. Thank you for pointing that out.

Hi,
the vrmc addon can't handle the "-M" option right now. you can use the addon by specifiing the path to the vmx-config.

Yeah, I figured that out on my own. For anyone that needs to know you can copy the path by logging in to the Web Access console then select the vm and click "Configure VM". The path is under "Virtual Machine Configuration File". It is in the required format for the session. [Datastore] path/vm.vmx

you can try the new version of vrmc-addon, which can handle the "-M" option.
