Error loading web console with vmware html5 client

Good afternoon Everyone!

I want to connect from my Debian to the vCenter through several browsers and it gives me the following error:


Message error:

Problem loading page

The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the

following protocols (vmrc) isn’t associated with any program or is not

allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Debian details:

Version 57.0.2987.98 Built on 8.7, running on Debian 8.11 (64-bit)

Distributor ID: Debian

Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 8.11 (jessie)

Release:        8.11

Codename:       jessie

Mozilla details:

Version         68.2.0esr

User Agent      Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101

Firefox/68.0

I hope you can help me.

Regards,

You're trying to open a VMRC link, which is not how you access vCenter Server. You'd go through https://<fqdn>/ui. For console, if you want that you need to install the VMRC application which is a separate download

As daphnissov mentioned, this message indicates that you are trying to open a virtual machine remote console, and you don't have the necessary application, which is called VMRC.

You can download it from this link (third one is for Linux):
