    Opening port in esxi 6.7 firewall

      To manage my ESXi host over a router, I need to change the https port for my host. I know how to do that in the reverse http proxy. But this only works when the port is opened in the firewall. I have found how to do that, but this only lasts until the next reboot of the host.


      I have found on the internet how I could solve that problem by writing a custom VIB and installing that on the ESXi host. I would need the VIB Author Tool to accomplish that.And that's where I got stuck. The VIB author tool is no longer supported and can no longer be downloaded. Gotcha.


      I have found no alternative solution that works for ESXi 6.7. How di I achieve that?
