Once the server is up and running, you will see its public IP, e.g. 18.104.22.168.
Now put this address in your browser. You will see the home page of your esx server. Select the option to download the vsphere client. This should take a few minutes to download.
Once you’ve downloaded the client, install it.
Now go to your packet.net and click on the key icon with the password that’s next to your deployed server. This password will only be there for 24h so make sure you store it somewhere safe.
Now use the vsphere client to connect to your esx instance, using the root user and the password .
