(New) - Supports vSphere 6.5
Connect to your Vmware® vCenter or to your ESX(i) server and take control of your Virtual Machines on the go!
The ideal application for Data Center Administrators who want to have a life outside of work too! :) It does not replace your vSphere® Client, but it comes really close to it.
Please check this link for VMConsole in-app configuration. Please let us know your feedback for things that are not clear.
iVMControl allows you to connect remotely and securely to your Virtualization Hypervisors and monitor the activity on the hosts and on the VMs.
-check alarms, events and task status
-status for every host and VM
-Power operations on VMs and Hosts
-Performance graphs (CPU/memory/NIC/HDD)
-make/restore/manage snapshots of VMs.
-Grouping of Hosts into datacenters
-Grouping of VMs into host systems
-Multiple vCenter/ESXi connections
-screenshots for VMs
As in-app purchase we offer the following additional capability:
- VM console via VNC (this is a one time purchase, it doesn't matter how many virtual machines you have, it's still the price of one in-app).

Console support for ESX/vCenter:
Please note that regardless of the connection point (ESX(i)/vCenter), the console connects *directly* to the ESX host where the VM you want to monitor resides. This implies you need to make sure that your ESX hosts have IP addresses that are *routable*, otherwise you will not be able to access the VNC console. IPs in the form 10.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x are *not* routable, if your ESX has one of these, you will not be able to access the console through vCenter. Even if the IPs are routable, you need to make sure that the port configured (in the range 5900-5909) is allowed through your firewall for each ESX device you want to connect to.
In case of a stand-alone ESX(i), a private IP can be used, but the port(s) needs to be forwarded in a similar manner (E.g. if your ESX has IP address 192.168.1.100 and your Internet-facing IP address is say 126.96.36.199, you need to make sure both the SSL port (443) and the VNC ports used (5900-5909) are being forwarded to the *same* IP address - 188.8.131.52:443 -> 192.168.1.100:443 and 184.108.40.206:(5900-5909) -> 192.168.1.100:(5900-5909).
Furthermore, please make note of the fact that only the 8-character password is encrypted with the standard VNC client. All VNC client traffic is sent unencrypted across the network. If security is a concern in your organization, you need to be aware of this. You can disable your VNC terminal once you are done with the Console session (use Configure Console and disable VNC altogether).
VMWare Tools needs to be installed on each and every VM that is monitored through iVMControl's console connection. Check the Vmware knowledge base on other requirements:
- Single click, pan and zoom are standard as any iPhone application
- Tap with two fingers for right click
- Ctrl-Alt-Del button sends a Ctrl-Alt-Del sequence to the VM
- Keyboard button will raise/lower the keyboard.
More to come (let us know what other features you would like to see!).
** NOTE ** VMware decided to offer read-only access to the management APIs for the *FREE* version of ESXi. This applies to all management applications, and is enforced by VMware. What this means for iVMControl is that if you have a FREE ESXi, you will be able to use only the 'read-only' (monitoring) functions of iVMControl.
Support for 64-bit iOS 11
Ratings and Reviews
No tech support
Once you guess how to configure the app it's pretty handy, I'm using it with a home lab and a Vmug license of vsphere 6.5. I bought the console plug in and can't figure out how to configure it and there has been NO response from them as far as tech support or even example screens, no help built into the app. Again, once I guessed on the configuration it's kind of fun to use. If you're out there tech support, please answer my requests, buy at your own risk that you will guess how to use it.
Does not work with ESXi Free
The program appears to be solid, but I really wish I knew nothing would work on ESXi before I wasted $15. Bought app for $10 and then console add-on for $5. All worthless on the standard ESXi free version. Cannot start or stop VMs, can't connect via console. Really can't do anything at all other than see a list of your VMs. Can't control the main server either.
It is a great app. I’ve been using it for years however, remote console is not working and the website they refer you to does not exist.
