    After upgrading to 754035, unable to access Server

    kingneutron Master

      In Edit \ Preferences \ Shared VMs, Workstation Server Settings is Enabled, but I get error (even when running WS as root):

       

      Unable to connect to the Workstation Server. Please ensure that the server is running and that you are authorized to connect.

       

      --Admittedly I did not test this before upgrading.

       

      WS Server is using default port 443, nothing else should be listening on it.

       

      # netstat -nalp |grep 443
      tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:443             0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      16082/vmware-hostd

      Host is Linux 64-bit running a fresh install of Linux Mint 13, kernel 3.2.0-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP

       

      Note: I am running the X session as user "dave" and vmware workstation is being started as " dave2 ":
