Interesting, wonder why someone would use VNC on VMware after having read that article!

Though I have been able to work with VNC on RHEL VM running on VMware GSX without issues.
Everything works fine except the screen resolution is limited and mouse movements aren't super
precise.

Regards,
Somesh

VMware requires guest VM to have VMware tools installed for mouse to work.
