A shared virtual machine is a virtual machine on the host system that remote Workstation users can access as a remote virtual machine. Up to 100 remote users can connect to a single shared virtual machine at the same time.

You can configure Workstation so that users on remote Workstation hosts can interact with your local host and use the shared virtual machines that are running on it. You can also connect to remote hosts and run remote virtual machines. You control who can access host systems and shared virtual machines by setting permissions.
