How to get management client?

I installed ESXi 6.0.0 on a machine.  When I connect to it with a browser, it displays a page about VMware vCenter Converter Standalone.  That doesn't help me... I need the management client, but I cannot find any resource that tells me exactly what URL would get it.  And I need to get it from this machine, because that network is not connected to the Internet.

Use following KB and download vSphere Client version 6 which is suitable for ESXi 6.0

Hi John,

the first link on the Web welcome page of the ESXi host is

and this is exactly what you are looking for-

There is no reference to the Converter though, so I'm not really sure at what page you were looking?!

It doesn't give me a link for vSphere Client.  It gives me one for Converter.  I have no idea why... I installed from the CD ISO and then went to http://my-host and that's what I get.

What is the actual URL that will result in me getting the client?

Great, but how do I get it from my ESXi host?  It's a huge PITA to get something from the Internet.

Dear Sysjno,

Please navigate to the IP address of your ESXi host, that is https://ipaddressofesxi
You will be navigated to Getting started page.
You can click on Download vSphere Client.
