Use VNC To Remote Display Your VMware VMs

I had no idea you could do this, but while poking around the configuration file for one of my VMware VMs, I discovered that VMware had set it up so the VM could display using a VNC server. The cool thing is, it even works in the free VMware Player! Just add this to your .vmx file:

RemoteDisplay.vnc.enabled = "TRUE"
RemoteDisplay.vnc.password = "vncpasswd"
RemoteDisplay.vnc.port = "tcp-port"

More verbage explaining this here, but that’s the basics. Works pretty nice!
