  • vSphere Client 5 to esxi5 over VPN

    Hi,
    I'm having trouble connecting to an ESXi 5 server using vSphere (VpxClient) 5 over a VPN. I am able to connect to an esxi 3.5 server without difficulty. However, when I attempt to connect to an esxi 5 server, the VpxClient fails with the message: An unknown connection error occurred. (The request failed because of a connection failure.(Unable to connect to the remote server)). I can connect using a computer on the local network, but not over a VPN. This is the first esxi 5 server I have installed.

    Any suggestions / help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Shouldn't be any problem connecting to a ESXi server from a remote location. I do it all the time.

    Can you ping the server from the remote location???

    Can you access the web front end from the remote location???

      I cannot ping the esxi server from the remote location. I can, however, ping VMs that are running on the esxi server.

      I cannot access the front-end web server (using http or https).

      I am able to connect to a different esxi 5 server using VpxClient on another VPN tunnel.

        You will need to investigate why you cannot get to the ESXi box before it will be able to connect.

        Canyou ping other devices on teh same subnet as your ESXi device???

        Have you checked your network configuration on the ESXi host to make sure it is correct??? Remember it will need the correct gateway do it can route back to your network.

          check the gateway on your service console
          also check the routes..

            also please check the firewall settings in between vpn and ESXi and the firewall in ESXi itself
