OpenSUSE :: VmWare Plugin For Firefox Does Not Open A Console In X64 11.3

Oct 26, 2010

The usual way to access to a virtual machine console from a VmWare server 2 is to use Firefox :

- you type the URL of your VmWare server, e.g. : https://myserver:8333
- then you click on the console tab, for the vm you want to access to
- the first time, firefox tells you to install a dedicated plug-in
- then, when you click on the right panel, a new window appears for the vm console.

But on a fresh installed x64 Suse 11.3, with Firefox 3.6.6, the plug-in does not open the window and you get an error : "Cannot access virtual machine console. The request timed out." There is a workaround that I find much more convenient than to use firefox :

- you need to access to your vmware server installation :
/usr/lib/vmware/webAccess/tomcat/apache-tomcat-6.0.16/webapps/ui/plugin
- you fetch the vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.xpi file and you copy it somewhere on your Suse PC (e.g. /home/myhome)
- you change the extension : mv vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.xpi vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.tar.gz
- you unzip it : unzip vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.tar.gz (it will create 2 files and 2 directories : components and plugins)
- you will run the VmWare plug-in directly : plugins/vmware-vmrc
- for the hostname, you have to enter : myserver:8333
- and it works !

General :: VMware Snapshot With VMware Tools Loses Network On Restart - Host XP - Guest Fedora

Oct 3, 2010

I have been using VMware Player for some time to host Fedora VMware images on Windows XP. I have been using Fedora 11 and 12 (both 32 and 64 bit) and recently started to use Fedora 13.

I use as a base the images provided by thoughtpolice. http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/

I usually install VMware tools and also keep the images updated (yum update) which sometimes changes the kernel.

I have recently had problems with the snapshots not having a network when I restore them. So far I don't have the problem with Fedora 11 and do have it with Fedora 12 (but used not to). I do have it with Fedora 13.

In each case the problem goes away when I uninstall the VMware tools and comes back when I install them again.

One of the symptoms is that SElinux complains about not being able to do something with /var/run/vmware-active-nics.

It looks to me that something is incorrect in the actions being taken when the snapshot is being restored. It does not happen every time and sometimes the network restores itself.

The network can be restored by rebooting the image.

General :: Vmware Server 2.0.2 Installation On 12 - Making Sure Services For VMware Server Are Stopped

May 19, 2010

I have installed fc12 on my core2due machine, and I have installed the vmware server on it, its rpm is installed successfully with out any error, after that a message is displayed

The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully. You can decide to remove this software from your system at any time by invoking the following command: "rpm -e VMware-server".

Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl".

I tried this command and find the this message

[Akram@localhost Downloads]$ su -c "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl" Password: Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] yes

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.4.2", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.4.3" anyway? [no] yes

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/src/linux/include]

Now it asks me in last lines that "What is the location of Directory of C header files that match your running kernal?"

Ubuntu :: Open VMware Tools Aren't Detected By VMware Workstation

Jul 17, 2011

I have installed the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (11.04) into latest VMware workstation (7.1.4 build-385536). I have tried to install the VMware tools ISO that came with VMware workstation but It didn't work and the installation seemed real sloppy anyways.

I installed the open VMware tools from synaptic within the guest linux and restarted, everything seemed to have been installed just fine but VMware Workstation doesn't detect it. I'm not sure if the tools are outdated, silent errors happened, or if any manual post installation steps need to be taken.

getting any form of VMware tools to run in Linux and detected by VMware Workstation.

I completed the installation of VMWare Server 2.0.2 onto a CentOS 5.4 64-bit distribution. There is a VMware virtual machine file on the server in question, and I want to activate it through the application console.

I did not see anything readily apparent that would facilitate the importing of the virtual machine file. Does anyone have a procedure that can accomplish this task?

General :: Cd's - Sound And Internet Access Through VMware ?

Oct 2, 2010

I want sound and internet access thru Linux using VMware. It will give me confidence to add it as a dual boot to my hard drive. I have sound and internet access thru Windows 7. I have sound thru the sound card test but I'm not able to hear cd's. I see the time elapsing thru the cd player but no sound.

I'm having problems with the network configuration, I get the message, "cannot activate the device etho:1 no link found". I have a DSL connect thru windows. Shouldn't I be able to get the internet thru VMware? If so how?

Ubuntu :: Exit GDM To CLI Under VMWare ESXi Console?

Apr 26, 2011

run VMWare ESXi and have installed Ubuntu 10.10 in a virtual machine.People say you press CRTL+ALT+F1 to exit back to command line from the gnome login screen but this never works for me.If I do something like "sudo service gdm stop" it just delivers me to the desktop background almost like the machine has hung, no menus toolbars, mouse or anything.Basically what I want to be able to do is start up the machine with command line, and go into gnome on occasion and exit back out to command line to save resources, this is because the machine will mainly serve as a web server. I followed the guide here [URL] which tells how to make ubuntu always start at CLI, which works nicely, but I need a way to be able to get back to CLI from inside gnome.

Ubuntu :: VMware Remote MKS Plugin Not Running

Nov 26, 2010

I'm trying to access a VMware server via Lab Manager using Firefox 3.6.12 from Ubuntu 10.10. Lab Manager comes up but when I double click on a VM console to open it up I get: VMware Remote MKS Plugin not running. So, I install the plugin and restart Firefox, as directed. The plugin shows that VMware Remote MKS Plugin 2.2.0.0 is installed. I go back to Lab Manager and double click on it, but get the same message. Lab Manager does not find the plug in.

OpenSUSE :: Vmware Server Cannot Connect Virtual Machine Console?

Jan 29, 2010

Since a few weeks I cannot open a console in vmware server 2.0.2 anymore. I don't know exactly when this started because I use vmware only occasionally (I have only 1 program (an old Ashlar DrawingBoard) which does not run properly in wine). VMware server and the console have been working before without problems, but now I get the message "Cannot connect virtual machine console." and it times out. This is on Opensuse 11.1 with VMware Server on the same pc, Firefox and the guest is Windows2000.

I have tried to disable all extensions in firefox 3.6, disabled the firewall, even created a new user (on the same pc) with a clean firefox, all without any result. However when I connect from a different computer which runs Internet Explorer under windowsXP, then I can get the console without problem.

So, somewhere there is something wrong between Firefox and VMware server.

General :: Windows XP Vmware Guest Unable To Access Certain Internet Hosts

Jan 28, 2010

I have annoying problem. My setup is the following: debian Linux, 64 bits, VMWare workstation 7 host, with Windows XP running as guest. From Firefox, or Internet Explorer, I am unable to access few sites, for example nvidia.com, osdir. Basically get connection timed out, on the other hand ping works to those sites. Moreover, Slashdot loads very very slow and sometimes gets horrible text-only version.

everything works fine on Linux host

I suspect it has something to do with routing on Linux, I recall having similar problem long time ago, which was fixed by setting something in /proc.

I tried setting MTU and TCP window size on Windows lower, but did not help

CentOS 5 Server :: Cannot Access VMware Via Infrastructure Web Access

May 9, 2011

I've recently installed CentOS 5, because I needed a good OS to run VMware Server. Just a heads up, I'm not very familiar with RH/CentOS distros, I usually use Arch Linux. My VMware install went fine, config is standard settings. Now I'm trying to access the VMware Infrastructure Web Access using port 8222 (http) and 8333 (https), but it's a no go. I'm connecting from another machine on the LAN, as the CentOS box is headless. I restarted the vmware services, and they seem to be launching fine. I don't know much about VMware though. I verified with netstat and ports 8222 and 8333 are listening.

CentOS 5 :: VMware Server 2.0.1 On 5.3 Has Tainted Kernel - Can't Access VM Web Interface?

Apr 26, 2009

I can install VMware Server 2.0.1 on CentOS 5.3 (32-bit and 64-bit) perfectly. However, I can't access Server's web interface by going to port 8222 on the machine's IP address. When CentOS 5.3 (32 or 64-bit) is loading, I am greeted with this message "VM communication interface socket family: vsock: no version for "VMCIDatagram_Send" found: kernel tainted." I assume this is the reason why I can't access my Server through a web browser. How do I correct this? Is there a package I need to install on CentOS prior to installation of Server 2.0.1?

It's strange, because I can install 2.0.1 on Ubuntu Server 8.10 with absolutely no problem and access its web interface. So I think this might be a CentOS-specific issue I've uncovered.

Ubuntu :: Restoring Firefox Plugin FEBE - Error Console

May 12, 2010

After installing Lucid Lynx on a clean partition, as I usually do with all new releases, I had the idea of backing up my Firefox settings and stuff from the old installation with the Firefox plugin FEBE, to restore it into my new Firefox. It didn't go so well. I should've settled for just restoring the extensions, not settings and preferences too. Below is a copy of the Error Console, right after startup of Firefox. It seems something originally present (is it the Ubuntu One plugin?) was lost when I restored the FEBE files:

Fedora :: VMWare Web Server - Can't Access Tomcat On Port 8080 From The Outside World

Jul 29, 2009

I am having trouble getting my FC10 with tomcat visible to the outside world. first off i am somewhat new to linux. I am running vmware workstation to host my linux web server. i have my VMWare setup to use my second NIC solely. it is bridged and the tcp/ip is disable from the host. i can ping the ip address but cant access tomcat on port 8080 from the outside. i can hit it fine from inside fedora. i have configured my router (wrt54gs with DD-WRT firmware) for port forwarding. so basically i think that the problem is somewhere in between the host and the vmware configuring allowing the port to be forwarded through.

Fedora Networking :: 12 Booting In VMWare WS But Cannot Mount/access Windows Host

Apr 1, 2010

I have Fedora 12 (Fedora-12-i686-Live.iso) installed and booting in a VMWare workstation (version 6.5.3). I am able to login as the LiveUser.

I need information on how to access the drives on my host which is WindowsXP. My C: on the host is shared, and my network adapter for the VM is "NAT".

The only directory listed in my /mnt directory is "live".

My Fedora enviornment is "bare bones". There is nothing installed except for the original files from the "iso" loading procedure.

I also have been unable to get the VMWare tools installed, and I don't know if this is related. I don't mind bypassing this if this isn't required. My only desire right now is to access my C:

Networking :: Isolating A VMware Virtual Machine From It's Host But Still Alowing Internet Access

Oct 31, 2009

I have a WindowsXP virtual machine which I need to isolate from the host machine completely (have the host act as a bridge but not be visible on the IP layer at all.) It still needs to have Internet access. Obviously it has to be able to contact the router but I would like to be able to block port 80 (or even just block all SYN packets addressed to the router.) I also want to allow port forwarding from the router to the virtual machine. I can use basic iptables but this is way beyond me.

The host OS is probably going to be Debian Lenny but this is not built yet so if someone can recommend a different distro which is as lightweight as possible but will support VMWare, iptables and tcpdump then that would be great. I was thinking of Slackware but I have not used it in ages and from what I can remember their is no real package management.
