Gee, Back-To-My-Mac does the same on my OSX 10.9.4 system
Yeah, except if you have other VM's running locally, you have to shut them all down too, just to reconnect back to the server.
I just realized, however, I do not think I can use this as a solution. I will probably have to stick with RDP. Copy & paste, copying files between VM are not available on Workstation Server.

That is sort of a good thing, though it would be good if it could be restricted by the connecting user's Role on the server.
Unfortunately, this capability is already "legacy" --they need to add X.264-streaming-consoles to vSphere 6 (that you can connect to with VLC, if nothing else). If they don't their users will continue moving to cloud systems and competitors that are real good at adding lightweight features like this, though still lacking in the under-the-hood virtualization department.
