    Question Ubuntu Server hosting VMWare Server machines ...

    I currently have a system that has Gusty Desktop hosting Samba and Apache w/ VMWare server installed and hosting a virtualized Win2K3 server.

    I'd like to have it set up where I'm using Gusty Server w/o the GUI since I'm trying to squeeze out as much free disk space as possible, and still have VMWare Server installed and working

    Then from my laptop w/ Gusty Desktop and VMWare Server installed, remote connect to the Gusty Server via port 902 to get the gui for VMWare. Is this possible? Do I need to have a GUI interface on the Gusty Server in order to get VMWare Server up and running?

    AFAIK, you do not. I have a ubuntu 7.10 desktop hosting my vmware stuff and use my ubuntu laptop to control it, from starting/stopping a virtual machine to creating them. Main reason is I do not even have a monitor attached to the desktop.

    Yeah, I know it'll work with Gusty Desktop (which is my current setup) ... I was just wondering if it'll work w/ Gusty Server and to see if anyone got it working this way before I spend the time to verify it.
