I am using ESXi 6.7 and am trying to connect to a Windows 10 VM on it, using VNC.
I have gone through the configuration steps to add VNC to services.xml and update the firewall rules.
Running 'esxcli network firewall ruleset list | grep VNC' returns 'VNC true".
In the configuration for the VM I added the keys:
RemoteDisplay.vnc.enabled = TRUE
RemoteDisplay.vnc.port = 5951
When I try to connect via <ip_address>:5951, I am unable to connect. I have tried using various VNC clients both on Linux and Windows, all with the same results.
If I install TightVNC Server on the VM, I can connect using VNC, but obviously this isn't desired and I need to be able to connect without installing a VNC Server.
Thanks in advance.
Did you power off the VM when you applied those settings? If not, it will need to be powercycled to pick up the advanced settings
