Accessing headless VirtualBox from SunRay terminal

I got inspired by this blog and did some experiments. Serving Sun Rays from inside a VirtualBox
  1. I have VirtualBox installed on Linux. One of my guest is Solaris 10 image migrated from VMware, named "Sol10 VMware". It isn't "Remote Display" enabled. Like:
    [kinoue@mylinux ~]$ grep Remote ~/.VirtualBox/Machines/Sol10\\ VMware/Sol10\\ VMware.xml
    <remotedisplay authtimeout="5000" authtype="null" enabled="false" port="3389"/>
    It's not required to enable this.

  2. Start this vbox guest in headless mode. "-vrdpport" option is not mandatory.
    [kinoue@mylinux ~]$ VBoxVRDP -startvm "Sol10 VMware" -vrdpport 3390
    VirtualBox VRDP Headless Interface 1.5.6

    Listening on port 3390
  3. Go to SunRay terminal. Start Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) called "Sun Ray Connector".
    myid@sunray-server$ /opt/SUNWuttsc/bin/uttsc -g 640x480 -P 3390 mylinux
    No entry for connector proxy found in /etc/services, using default port 7014 ...
BTW, VMware uses VNC for remote access protocol. And I don't think it's supported in VMware Player.
