  • 1.  Default Login Ports

    Posted Sep 28, 2015 01:03 AM

    Hello everyone so I recently installed ESXI 6 on my server from proxmox and used the fling ESXI embedded host client which uses the default authentication ports 80 and 443. My question is how would i go about editing the Auth ports to something like 8080 and 8081. The reason I would like to do this is because this is a test lab for learning and would like to access the web panel remotely. I have considered setting up a VPN but i would rather forward a port such as 8080 or 8081 and access it that way. I am aware this question has been answered before but it has been regarding 5.0 and 5.5 which uses proxy.xml which was removed or move in 6.0 as i cannot find it. If this has been answered elsewhere i apologize.

    You might need to edit /etc/vmware/rhttpproxy/config.xml file in 6.0 (As per pubs article vSphere 6.0 Documentation Center)

    Also there is some discussion regarding this in Re: Proxy.xml which we use to modify to enable HTTP for vSphere SDK is not found in ESX 5.1 server
