    Port changed

    noob2012 Lurker

      Installed VMWare Server 2.0 on my laptop. It was working for a couple of weeks now without any issues. The shortcut on my desktop for VMware Server Home Page was pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Server\serverui.url" which was pointing to http://laptopname:8333/ui/

       

      Today when I tried to launched my VM, the UI homepage won't come up. Searching on google, one of the people suggests using http://laptopname:8308/ui/ which works for me.

       

      I can change my shortcut to point to the new URL; however my concern is what's the next port it'll jump to, the next time it changes again?

      My question is why does the port changes by itself? And how do I change it back? More importantly, how do I permanently change it back?

       

      thanks!
