You should be connecting to either the VSphere or your ESX servers but not to the VMs themselves. If your VSphere manages all of your ESX servers just connect to the VSphere. The VM Console host talks to the VCenter host via web service. If you can connect from the host machine to the VCenter service manually you should be able to connect to it from the VM Console using the same credentials.
i am able to connect to the VSERVER (vShere) host via https:\\x.x.x.x in IE, but the VM Console keeps saying proxy server authentication required.
something is clearly amiss and i could really use some help. i just don't understand what the problem is.
do i need to configure certain ports or something?
I too am having the "(407) Proxy Authentication Rquirerd" problem.
A wireshark trace shows VMMonitor is trying to get to our ISA proxy even thogh my IE settings are set to bypass it for local addresses. When I remove the proxy settings from IE VMMonitor works, but the moment I put them back, VMM errors with the 407.
Guys, this should be a simple fix (at least for local addresses).
