Using Vmware webaccess under linux and Firefox 3

The only way to have a working vmware console under linux, is using "webaccess" or connecting via msRDP to a win client .

Let's start setting up webaccess plugin.

Open you r *zilla browser and point to http://yourvirtualcenter.yourdomain and don't worry about "usupported browser message"; I've made this under Iceweasel on Debian Squeeze.
Try to open a virtual machine's console; you'll be asked to install a plugin, but unfortuantely the plugin installation fails.

How to solve this problem...

Frist install libexpat library.
UnderĀ  Debian Squeeze (and all debian like distros):

  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get install libexpat1
  3. ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Go another time to your virtualcenter webaccess and now you can install the pluging and open the console.
