I'm running VirtualBox 4.1.6 on an Ubuntu 11.10 host machine. The extension pack is installed. The guest is Ubuntu 11.10 as well. I'm now trying to connect via vrdp to a vm that i created. I configured the vm to allow remote connections on port 5000 via VirtualBox Manager.
After starting the VM in headless mode using
VBoxHeadless --startvm <name> the vm starts and logs
VRDE server is listening on port 5001
I tried to connect locally using rdesktop, as mentioned as a test in the VirtualBox manual, with the command
rdesktop localhost:5001 but to no avail. I'm getting the following errors:
ERROR: send: Datenübergabe unterbrochen (broken pipe) disconnect: Server initiated disconnect
I also tried to connect from a windows machine in my network, doesn't work as well (the mstsc error messages are expressionless.
I tried to start the VM normally using the VirtualBox Manager, booting it up until login screen, and then tried to connect with rdp, but it shows the same errors.
I couldn't find something like this solved on the internet. So anyone has a clue what i'm doing wrong?
