I need a web front end to either VMWARE workstation or VMWare Server (free edition). This should run on window server preferably but linux with installation instructions will be acceptable.
Phase 1 : The web front end should provide the login user with the capability to start / stop / restart vmwares machine by clicking on a icon and then selecting the appropriate option. User ID / Passwords should be easily manageble via a administrative interface. This is to be used for students training. Login ID should not have local rights to the host machine.
This should not be difficult since the appropriate API is avialable from VMWare.
Phase 2: Optional feature will be scheduling capability and ability for administrator to reset the vmware to a snapshot as well as to manage a remote power control (APC) through SNMP or other means as well as ability to click on a icon and have the system ssh or telnet to a device and sent pre-defined commands to these devices.
Additional information can be provided.
(1) How much time they required ?
(2) Which programming language is used ?
(3) Any additional commercial software or components required ?
