    Folks
    General comment.
    My system is behind firewalls - I have no external IP connectivity.
    The vsphere client is no longer bundled with 4.1 and forces a redirect to vmware for download.
    I had to jump through a few hoops to get to the file and get it on the system and its a good 280M
     
    Maybe we should consider allowing the VIcllent to be already bundled somehow on the system just in case a customer has a similar firewalled config.. I take the point that VMware's docs imply you must have a live internet connection - but it might be a nice to have if we can do this.

    The current  redirected download URL is:
    http://vsphereclient.vmware.com/vsphereclient/2/5/8/9/0/2/VMware-viclient-all-4.1.0-258902.exe
     
    best regards

    Steve,



    That's the standard behavior with ESXi 4.1. If you install ESXi on a server and point to it, you will notice that it launchs a URL connecting to VmWare.com and if you don't have internet connectivity the client won't install.
