NAME

       vmware-xferlogs - dump vm-support output to vmx logfile

SYNOPSIS

       vmware-xferlogs OPTIONS FILE

DESCRIPTION

       vmware-xferlogs is a simple console application and can be run as any user. It is based on
       rpctool to dump the vm-support output to the vmx log file base64 encoded. It can dump  any
       file  supplied on the commandline to the vmx log. It also does the decoding part of it. It
       can read the vmware.log file decode and write the encoded files in the  directory  it  was
       invoked.

       Example of a transfer found in the vmx log file:
