I've started a headless virtualbox instance with this command:
VBoxManage startvm "Ensembl67VirtualMachine" --type headless Waiting for VM "Ensembl67VirtualMachine" to power on... VM "Ensembl67VirtualMachine" has been successfully started.
It is set up with
Remote Desktop Server Port:5555 with
Authentication Method: Null and
Extended Features: Allow Multiple Connections and it's now running, but I don't know how to connect to it from the same laptop where it's running. I would like to be able to have it running on a terminal. I tried this but nothing happens:
rdesktop localhost:5555 ERROR: localhost: unable to connect rdesktop 127.0.0.1:5555
