I was trying to find a way to configure the vSphere Web Console plugin port it connects to since I run a non-standard port for SSL on the vCenter server. This is what I came up with after doing some research.
First thing’s first, download and install the console plugin.
Linux (more info for linux: http://www.geeklab.info/2010/02/running-vmware-remote-console-outside-the-browser/)
This allows me to change the port that VMware VMRC web console plugin uses to connect because I can create a shortcut to the vmware-vmrc executable and pass the needed arguments.
I can run the following command to access my virtual machine (given that I know the MOID):
c:program files (x86)common filesvmwarevmware remote console plug-invmware-vmrc.exe -h 220.127.116.11:11443 -M vm-1234
