VMWare Server Console on Mac

I figured out that I could run the VMWare Server Console via X over SSH on
my Mac. It's working okay, Screens seem a wee bit slower than when using
the server console locally on Linux, for example, but it's really not all
that bad. Is this the "best" way at this point? Or is there something else
that would work better.

Thanks.

Danitaz,

The best way is over RDP.

Thanks,
Zach

That seems the worst way to me actually!

Re: VMWare Server Console on Mac

The best way is to make a Windows XP VM, RDP into it, then run the remote
console from there. VERY quick. Any other way is not-all-that-quick. From
reading the VM Server support forums, remote console performance is a known
issue and for some reason running it in a VM works A-OK.

Well, I do have a Windows VM on my laptop even that I can use for that
matter. But actually I'm quite impressed with the overall speed and
usability of just running X over SSH from the VMWare server itself. I guess
it would depend on "where" I am. If I'm here on my network, that is very
fast. My guess is that if I'm away I would probably prefer running it some
other way.

That's good to hear. I'm going to put your method to practice!

Well, it's not nearly as painful as Linux with finding "alternatives" to
things I've done before <g>.
