If you were having trouble downloading the latest VMware Remote Console (VMRC) 5.1 SDK, this issue has now been resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The latest release of VMRC 5.1 SDK now provides support for both vSphere 5.1 as well as vCloud Director 5.1:

The VMRC SDK allows you to use a Web-based application to connect to a vCenter- or vCloud Director-managed virtual machine and access that virtual machine’s console in a browser window. You can interact with the virtual machine console input and screen. You can also use the VMRC SDK to manage virtual and physical device connections on a vCenter-managed virtual machine.


To get more details about the latest release of VMRC 5.1 SDK, be sure to check out the VMRC release notes, programming guide as well as the download on the main VMRC landing page here. There is also a dedicated VMRC VMTN community for any further questions or discussions.
