Default vmware server 2 won't start

I followed The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) howto, everything went smooth, exept for the vmware, I'm getting a "503 Service Unavailable" when I try to open it on my browser.

When I did this, I got these results:


Code:
~$ /etc/init.d/vmware start
Starting VMware services:
   Virtual machine monitor                                            failed
   Virtual machine communication interface                             done
   Virtual ethernet                                                   failed
   Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0                                   done

Default Same issue for me

I have the same issue, the web browser returns:
"503 Service Unavailable"

I've installed VMWare server 2 on a Linux Intrepid Install, all services start ok:
Starting VMware services:
Virtual machine monitor done
Virtual machine communication interface done
Virtual ethernet done
Bridged networking on /dev/vmnet0 done
VMware Server Authentication Daemon (background) done
Shared Memory Available done
Starting VMware management services:
VMware Server Host Agent (background) done
VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access
Starting VMware autostart virtual machines:
Virtual machines done

I have an Apache Install, and am wondering if the 2 webservers are clashing. I stopped apache just to check, also no luck. I really am a bit lost, because I don't find many posts on this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Netstat -tap output

Hi Falko

There was a large output, but I guess we're looking for the relevant ports, here is some of the output:

(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
Active Internet connections (servers and established)

Can you run
Code:
configure-vmware.pl
as root again?
