vmci(9) vmware kernel module


modprobe vmci


This is a Linux kernel device driver module that drives VMware's inter-VM communication device. The device itself is backed by a PCI-based virtual hardware implementation, so hotplug or udev should load it at guest boot time in any VMs using hardware version 7.


vmci has no options.
