You connect to VMware Server through the web interface. If you installed with the standard default, try pointing your web browser to http://localhost:8222. If you modified the port VMWare is listening to, use that at the end of the URL.

It will work if you use your browser to go to http://localhost:8222. Note the difference between what I'm suggesting you do (http on port 8222) and what vmare is trying to do (https on port 8333). I don't know why, but https seems screwed up somehow and doesn't allow a connection. If you don't have a GUI on your VMware host, you can also access the web interface from a different machine provided the VMware host is set up to allow connections on port 8222.

Hi avee137,

Not to put you off VMWare (its a great tool ) - but have you tried KVM (you do need a CPU that supports virtualization)?

I'm running Fedora 12 as a host and a Windows 7 and Ubuntu VM - which run pretty nicely (Windows 7 is quite heavy on resources though )
