    Getting error when opening console while remoteing to ESX

    JoelPx Enthusiast

      Hi all,


      Finally got our little Virtual network off the ground, but trying to setup to remote to it using a SSL gateway, where we have to plug in the ports that have to be used.


      Have 902 and 903 opened for the Virtual Client to use from a remote system.


      So far I can remote to the ESX server perfectly using the Virtual Client, can even power on the virtual machines.


      Problem comes in when I try to open a console to the virtual machines.


      It will hang for a minute before timing out and coming up with this message:


      Error connecting. Cannot connect to host x.x.x.x: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connection host has failed to respond.



      If I run netstat –a right after trying to open the console I see that my remote box is trying to talk to the ESX server.


      TCP :903     SYN_SENT


      But it just times out every time. If I remote to the server from internally it works great. So I’m fairly sure there is some other port I must be missing to put in our SSL gateway.


      Anyone have any suggestions?
