What is the best client to connect to Virtualbox? - Dirk32 - 10-04-2015

Hello,
i do have a Windows 7 Professional installation in a virtual machine (with virtualbox) on my host. I want to make a remote Connection to this machine with the Pi automatic on startup and in full screen mode.
What are your suggestions? I have Microsoft Remote Desktop available at the host or is there a better solution in this distro to connect with a virtualbox host?

Ummm i dont know if exist somethink like virt-viewer (spice client for qemu kvm) for virtualbox.
You can use RemoteBox (http://remotebox.knobgoblin.org.uk/) but with this client, users can power off on and modify the remote vm. I think is useful for remote management, not for remote user connection.
But if i remember well you can enable the remote desktop on the virtual machine in "Settings", "Display", "Remote Display" and then connect via FreeRDP or RDesktop by using the virtualbox "farm" ip and the port specified in the vm "Remote Display" settings.

I'm connecting directly to the RDP of my virtual machine with rdesktop.
It works very well.

I tried via the Terminal
rdesktop 192.168.2.124
i get the message: Unable to connect

I can reach the RDP with all other PC in the network via Remote Desktop Connection, the VM has no Firewall activated and the Raspberry Pi is in the same network (i can reach it via Shell). Any idea?

Have you tried the "less secure" option on the windows vm?
