    Can't connect to ESXi server from Ubuntu !

    Hi
    I am trying to connect to my ESXi server from my laptop using (vmware view open client) but it gives me an error msg that I have to check the server address,port,network and SSL settings !!..the connection is ok and I can ping the ESXi server from the terminal but I can't get into it through any vmware or RDP viewer !!
    I have attached a screenshot of the error

    Thanks

    Open View only connects to Windows VMs running inside a Vmware View environment. RDP only connects to Windows VMs.

    You can only "connect" to an ESXi server using the VMware Windows vSphere client.
