Accessing headless VirtualBox from SunRay terminal
By katsumii on Apr 11, 2008
I got inspired by this blog and did some experiments. Serving Sun Rays from inside a VirtualBox
- 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.xmlIt's not required to enable this.
<remotedisplay authtimeout="5000" authtype="null" enabled="false" port="3389"/>
- 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
- 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 ...
