      "Error opening the remote virtual machine &lt;hostname&gt;:8333\16:

      A connection to the host could not be established."

       

       

       

       

       

      When I try to connect to theVMWare Server Home Page I get the following Internet Explorer error:

       

       

      "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

       

       

      It seems a numebr of people are having similar problems but I cannot find any solutions to my problem.

       

       

      Help would be much appreciated.

       

       

      Thank you.
