VM Back Command Line Tools for VMware
VMware Command Line Tools
On this page, you’ll find command line programs which can replace and/or supplement the VMware’s official VMwareTools.
These programs use VMware’s undocumented and therefore not officially supported feature to communicate with VMware see VMware Backdoor I/O Port. Information on these functions have come entirely from my personal research and quite a few contributions by fellow VMware users.
These programs are intended partly as illustrative examples of how to use the VMware backdoor function and I have cut many corners writing them.
- vmw generic backdoor access program
- vmshrink virtual disk shrink program
- vmftp host-guest file transfer program
