First of all, I spend bout 15min searching the forums for a thread related to this..

My problem is that the virtual machines I have does start, but when I try to open the consoles, the VMWare Web Interface shows me this error message inside a popup:


Cannot access virtual machine console. The request timed out.

The attempt to acquire a valid session ticket for "<my-VM-name>" took longer than expected. If this problem persists, contact your system administrator.

Curiously, this problem ocurrs both on my desktop gentoo-amd64 and on my laptop gentoo-x86.
Some months ago, I had the same problem when installed this 64bit desktop because I reused the firefox personal directory from my /home partition when using 32bit system. That time, simply uninstall-reinstall of the vmware firefox plugin solved the problem. This time not.
Weird it is, because it's now occurring on the laptop too.

I took the suggestions of ubuntu-forum fellows, and start trying to disable/eliminate firefox plugins that could be interfering in the issue, but no sucess on that.
I even tried starting from a fresh firefox profile, but the problem persists.
I've already uninstalled-reinstalled vmware packages.

Now I'm using:

[U] app-emulation/vmware-modules
Available versions: (~) (~) {kernel_linux}
Installed versions: 02/12/10)(kernel_linux)

[I] app-emulation/vmware-server
Available versions:!s!s (~)!s (~)!s (~)!f!s
Installed versions:!f!s(12:33:39 02/17/10)

[I] app-emulation/vmware-vix
Available versions: (~)!s
Installed versions:!s(12:33:39 02/17/10)

and kernel 2.6.32-gentoo-r1.

Any request for more info will be promptedly satisfied.

Thanks for the attention.
Ficai em Paz..

AFAIK this is a known problem with the lastest version of Firfox - you could try a different browser (from a different (virtual) system).
Hello 911? How are you?
