Hi
I want to demo desktop virtualization (Part of project) so i have created two virtual machines in vmware workstation.  ESX 3.5, second with xp 32bit and loaded vSphere (to create Win7 VM on ESX server).

If i want to work on that VM as a client, how do i access it(pref using PCOIP). i have seen videos on how its done from an ipad etc but how to access via a pc/laptop. I believe Vmware view as an option but its not free.

You could use RDP into the Win7 box.

I don't follow....you've virtualised XP and ESXi within Workstation, and you want to be able to load vSphere from the XPVM to access the ESXi? Or am I on the wrong path here...?

I have virtualized ESXi And a Windows XP containing vSphere to create and maintain VM's stored on ESXi.

For a demo, Using vSphere i have created a Win7 VM on ESXi and want to use that VM as a normal client. a basic demonstration on Hosted Virtual Desktop.

Right, so you'll just need to make sure that the Win7 vm is networked properly and visible, then you can RDP it from any machine on the same network

The VM can be addressed by DHCP just like any other host on your network, so as long as the VM server is connected to the rest of your network you should be able to RDP into your virtual machines by hostname or IP address.

Why are you using ESX3.5?

I run ESXi4.1, with 2x VM's.

The 1st is Windows Server 2008R2 with terminal services (RDP).
And the 2nd is a linux based file server.

Using a windows based PC/Laptop... I can use vSphere and login to the ESXi box remotely and start a console session. This way I can administer each VM.

VMware do free licenses for non-server based hardware, that does not require features such as load balancing across ESXi servers etc.

You should look into this if is what you are after.

You won't be able to rdp into W7 if it is not the right version. I think only Ultimate, Professional and Enterprise will support that.

Otherwise VNC
