  • VMRC shortcuts not working.

    i am currently trying to set up a desktop shortcut to a virtual server using a VMRC shortcut.

    We have one exisiting that an ex-colleague set up.

    However when i try to duplicate the shortcut it doesn't work.

    The one that works points to

    \\hostserver\vmrc\vmrc.exe vmrc://hostserver:5900/virtualserver

    When creating the new shortcut to the newer virtual server, i can create a shortcut to the new host box


    and when i click it, it prompts for a server connection. I can connect it to the original virtual server that works above vmrc://hostserver:5900/virtualserver but not a newer virtual server on the 2nd host box; vmrc://hostserver2:5900/virtualserver2

    I have permissioned the C:drive on the new host box to allow permissions via VMRC directly. and that works fine when opening up VMRC

    I'm wondering if there's other permissioning that needs to be done to allow the shortcut to work. either on the host box or on the virtual server.

    one last thing. when i connect to the original host box and browse to where the vhd's are stored. on the the original box, the text for .vhd which the shortcut works for is blue. is this a sign of a permission change?

    I hope this is clear and makes sense.
