    Using VMware Server? What version? I haven't seen this error when connecting locally to the local host. Console uses port 902.

      I have read in one artical that if other application already using a port which VMWare Server Console try to use then such error occures. But i don't know how to check the port used by the application and change port for an application. I am getting below error message:

      "Error writing to vmware-authd socket. error 10013 "

        In a command prompt, run the command netstat -a -b -n -o

        You'll be returned with results similar to the screenshot I have provided. Look for the process(es) using port 902. Pay attention to the process name and process id that is using that port. In my case it's vmware-authd.exe which is correct. In your case, it would be some other application using port 902 if you have a port conflict.

          hi jason,

          I have tried this command and found that two instances of vmware-authd.exe are running on my machine on different ports(902 and 912) and no other application is using the same ports. and i am still facing the same problem. can you please guide me what should i do?

          Thanks,
          Chirag.

            Disable all VMware services
            Reboot the host
            Re-run the netstat -a -b -n -o command
            Now is there anything using port 902?

              Jason,

              I have checked it. still two instances of vmware-authd.exe are listening on two different ports. I am using VMware-server-installer-1.0.2-39867. is there any setting i need to do in Windows XP. Does Windows Vista Home basic supports VMWare?
              Thanks,
              Chirag.
