I had the same problem, it seems that no browser worrks on a 64bit os. I've tried vista ultimate & ubuntu as hosts. I think its a debug module which gets loaded which causes the problem. Hopefully this will go in the next beta.
The only way I could get this to work was to run the browser on a separate machine (xp pro 32bit) This works well, and aeems faster too. You need to open ports 902,8222&8333 on the vista host firewall to allow the connections through.
If you are on Windows, you can use the VI-Client. It's part of the Linux - Version auf VMware Server 2 Beta. Download the *.tar.gz - file, unpack it and pull the file "VMware-viclient.exe" out of it.
The VI-Client is much more usable, than the actual Web-Interface.
I installed VMware Server Beta 1 to a 64 bit gentoo linux. When I tried use the console with Infrastructure Client from a win xp 32bit machine I got an error message: "Connection terminated by server". I tried the web management interface, but I got the same error. Under gentoo I use 18.104.22.168 kernel. I searched errors in /var/log/vmware/hostd.log file but I did not find anything. Have I need any not customary setting or packages on gentoo?
Don't switch into threads with unrelated questions, please.
Open a new thread and you got a bigger chance for an answer to your linux related problem.
I have exactly the same problem but I have the host instalated in CentOS 5.0 and the client in windows vista 32 with SP1, did you fix your problem ?
I put a post in the gentoo forums: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-674321-highlight-.html
I've reinstalled server 2.0 a few times with my own instructions, and it works each time. I have not yet gotten the VIC running yet. I should have that shortly & I'll post the results.
You can find me @ gentoo better than here if you need more help.
Sorry, it doesn`t work.
The viclient doesn`t run unter 64Bit OS.
I use Windows Vista Ultimate 64Bit, because the RAM of my machine is 8GB
Thought that most/all 32Bit-Apps should run under Windows 64bit...
Does setup not even begin? Where does it crash?
The error message was displayed while setup.
This client doesn`t support 64Bit-OS
