    vSphere client cant connect to ESXi 5.5. Connection timeout.

      vSphere client cant connect to ESXi 5.5. System error message:


      Call "ServiceInstance.RetrieveContent" for object "ServiceInstance" on Server failed.

      The request failed because the remote server took too long to respond. (The command has timed out as the remote server is taking too long to respond)


      I dont change any settings in ESXi when this problem was spotted. I have tried to connect with different computers. Error message was same. When i trying to connect i see message of ssl cert, then client try to connect for long time, and finaly i get this error.


      But i can ping server with ESXi. When i do telnet <IP> 443 i get black screen of cmd. All virtual machines running on hypervisor works, and i can acces to VMs with 443, 80, ssh and rdp.


      Scan ESXi with nmap.
