Then, when I start VM i should be able to RDP to it, and that's what I get:
VBoxManage startvm webdev --type headless
Waiting for VM "webdev" to power on...
VM "webdev.svako.lt" has been successfully started.
timothy@Noriko ~ $ rdesktop -a 16 -N 192.168.1.13:3389

So how come I can't connect to it?.. I feel like I'm missing something, on Virtualbox man pages chapter 7 I feel running in circles, it makes me thing i need to install some kind of VRDP package on host for vms, in that chapter is said:
"For maximum flexibility, starting with VirtualBox 4.0, VirtualBox implements remote machine display through a generic extension interface, the VirtualBox Remote Desktop Extension (VRDE). The base open-source VirtualBox package only provides this interface, while implementations can be supplied by third parties with VirtualBox extension packages, which must be installed separately from the base package. See the section called “Installing VirtualBox and extension packs” for more information."
Than i click on a link where info about package should be, and that's what I find:
"VirtualBox Remote Desktop Protocol (VRDP) support; see the section called “Remote display (VRDP support)”." - And that section link, links exactly back from where the link was suggested...
i feel lost and don;t know what to do, please help )
Hi, thnx for reply, my version is 4.0. something, so I found right package, and when I try to install it:
"VBoxManage: error: Failed to install "/root/data/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.16-75491.vbox-extpack": Extension pack 'Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack' is already installed. In case of a reinstallation, please uninstall it first"
So it appears the problem isn't the extra stuff package... what else could it be?
