 += VMWare Client Authentication =
  
 +What can you do with the vmware client (vSphere Client):
 +
 +== Auto Authenticate to VirtualCenter ==
 +The vSphere client is (by default) installed in: 
 +<​code>​
 +C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Since VirtualCenter 2.5.2 you can pass your Windows credentials automatically to the virtualcenter when you log on. To do so, add these switches to the executable:
 +<​code>​
 +-passthroughAuth -s <​VirtualCenter hostname/​ip-address>​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +== Auto Authenticate with Different Credentials ==
 +In stead of using your own Windows credentials there are also possibilities to login with a different username and password. To do so, add these switches to the executable:
 +<​code>​
 +-s <​VirtualCenter hostname/​ip-address>​ -u <​username>​ -p <​password>​
 +</​code>​
