+        <h1>VMware Workstation/Player hypervisors driver</h1>
+        <p>
+        The libvirt VMware Workstation driver should be able to manage any Workstation and
+        Player version supported by the VMware VIX API. See the compatibility list
+        <a href="http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vix-api/vix110_reference/";>here</a>.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+    This driver uses the "vmrun" utility which is distributed with the VMware VIX API.
+    You can download the VIX API from <a href="http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vix-api/";>here</a>.
+
+    <h2>Connections to VMware driver</h2>
+
+    <p>
+    The libvirt VMware driver provides per-user drivers (the "session" instance).
+    Two uris are available:
+    <ul>
+      <li>"vmwareplayer" for VMware Player</li>
+      <li>"vmwarews" for VMware Workstation</li>
+    </ul>
+    Some example connection URIs for the driver are:
+    </p>
+
+<pre>
+vmwareplayer:///session                  (local access to VMware Player per-user instance)
+vmwarews:///session                      (local access to VMware Workstation per-user instance)
+vmwarews+tcp://user example com/session  (remote access to VMware Workstation, SASl/Kerberos)
+vmwarews+ssh://user example com/session  (remote access to VMware Workstation, SSH tunnelled)
+</pre>
+
