        <h1>VMware Workstation / Player / Fusion hypervisors driver</h1>
        <p>
        The libvirt VMware driver should be able to manage any Workstation,
        Player, Fusion version supported by the VMware VIX API. See the
        compatibility list
        <a href="http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vix-api/vix110_reference/">here</a>.
    </p>
    <p>
    This driver uses the "vmrun" utility which is distributed with the VMware VIX API.
    You can download the VIX API
    from <a href="http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vix-api/">here</a>.
    </p>

    <h2>Connections to VMware driver</h2>

    <p>
    The libvirt VMware driver provides per-user drivers (the "session" instance).
    Three uris are available:
    </p>
    <ul>
      <li>"vmwareplayer" for VMware Player</li>
      <li>"vmwarews" for VMware Workstation</li>
      <li>"vmwarefusion" for VMware Fusion</li>
    </ul>
    <p>
    Some example connection URIs for the driver are:
    </p>

<pre>
vmwareplayer:///session                  (local access to VMware Player per-user instance)
vmwarews:///session                      (local access to VMware Workstation per-user instance)
vmwarefusion:///session                      (local access to VMware Fusion per-user instance)
vmwarews+tcp://user@example.com/session  (remote access to VMware Workstation, SASl/Kerberos)
vmwarews+ssh://user@example.com/session  (remote access to VMware Workstation, SSH tunnelled)
</pre>
