Want to install VPN client on ESXi

Post by yh113 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 8:12 am

Hello,

I am new to Softether VPN and I found this product is extremely beautiful.
I installed a server on a PC then I would like to install a VPN client on ESXi 6.5 shell. As far as I googled some articles it is not possible to install VPN client on ESXi shell but I want to locate my ESXi with VPN client at a remote site? Need to deploy a small linux VM for VPN client as a step ladder? Is there any other elegant solution?

Regards

You can't install anything on ESXi other than VMware products - it's a hypervisor and is meant to run virtual machines - you need to install a VM in which to run your software and that includes SoftEther.
