Logging into VMware from your local desktop

Once you have downloaded the client and have it available on your desktop, it will still need to be set up, but it's very easy and painless, I promise! First you will click on the icon for VMware on your desktop after you have downloaded it.


Vmware will open to a screen with your available connection server options. We now need to set up a default connection server.

To add a server connection, click on "New Server" and you will be prompted to "enter the name of the connection server" you will enter: vipdesk-vdi.tetherview.com


Once the connection is added, a popup requesting your credentials will show. The log in credentials for our VMware View Client are your username (first.last name) and your VIPDesk Connect password.


After you enter your password, and verify that "VIPDESKCONNECT" from the Domain drop down you will be shown the desktop connections you have available. Simply double click on the connection you have been asked to use and you see the virtual desktop begin to load!

Here comes the wait......

It can sometimes take a few moments for the desktop to load.  Be patient, but if you find you are sitting at a welcome screen, for 10 minutes or more see my article regarding VMware desktops.
