Connecting to Esx 3i Server

Hello Guys,

I have a server sitting with ESX 3i which I access through my windows PC. Is there a possibility I can access it using my Ubuntu Desktop 12.04.

Just to add some more info the physical machine I am using on which Ubuntu is installed is an IBM xSeries 206, in short its a 32 bit hardware.

Please let me know if there is a possibility that I can access my VM's using my Ubuntu box

Thanks in advance

Are you wanting to access ESXi or the vm's ? .. I don't believe VI Client is working under Wine as yet, so you're only way to access ESXi is to enable tech support mode which starts sshd. If you were meaning you wanted to access the vm consoles then the answer is no, you can't. I still have a Windows VM on my machine just for this purpose.
