I'm trying to connect to a remote VMware Server and I'm having fits. I thought the problem was something to do with the CentOS installation I was using so I moved to Fedora 8 (which I have running on my local workstation and the Server Console connects fine).
Here are the details:
VMware Server 1.0.4
Fedora 8 with all updates as of today (2008-02-25)
SELinux set to permissive
iptables stopped on both server and workstation on which Server Console is running.
Here is what I get in the logs if I disabled SSL between the Server Console and the host:
Feb 25 15:27:32: mks| SOCKET 1 recv error 104: Connection reset by peer
Feb 25 15:27:32: mks| SOCKET 1 destroying VNC backend on socket error: 104
Here is what is in the logs with SSL enabled:
Feb 25 14:59:03: mks| SSL: Unknown SSL Error
Feb 25 14:59:03: mks| SSL Error: error:1409E0E5:SSL routines:SSL3_WRITE_BYTES:ssl handshake failure
I'm at a loss. Any help is appreciated.
OK, so here's some weirdness. I can connect to the VMware Server host just fine with a console running on Windows (in a Windows VM no less).
