When working on a Linux VM via the VMware Remote Console over a WAN or slow link, the keystrokes sent to the console might end up reppeating. In order to avoind this, perform the following steps:

 

1. Power down the VM

2. Add the following line to the VMX file (can also be done by editing the Advanced VM settings using the vSphere Client):

keyboard.typematicMinDelay = "2000000"

3. Save the VMX file

4. Power on the VM.

 

I decided to post this as I keep on forgetting what the fix is. Now I'll know where to find it in the future without having to go to Google ;-)
