# Revision history [back]

I have VNC working fine with my OpenStack+vSphere deployment. I am connecting to vCenter and not directly to the ESX Hosts. However according to VMWare you do have to open the ports on the hypervisor by either the esxcli, powercli, or the vSphere Client.

On the vSphere Client you select the host then configuration > firewall properties > gdbserver > select the checkbox > click ok. (this is really only for testing purposes) For production you would want to limit the ports to 5900-6000.

Nova.conf (My controller and compute node live on the same server, and this is configuration is for testing only)
