  • Can't connect to Virtual box remote screen on linux Fedora 17 host

    I get trouble to use virtualbox remote screen on a linux host. I activated server in settings->display->remotedisplay and the port is 33333.

    Then on linux I do : $ rdesktop 127.0.0.1:33333

    Autoselected keyboard map en-us
    ERROR: 127.0.0.1: unable to connect

    I have read info here http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch07.html. I tryed various connections addresses like localhost and my local IP, and checked netstat, port scanning.
    I removed the firewall.
    Also tryed to start the vm headless. and still can't connect

    Here is more info, Thanks for your help in advance

    $ uname -a Linux rocky 3.6.10-2.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Dec 11 18:07:34 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    $ vboxmanage -v 4.2.4_RPMFusionr81684

    After starting the virtual machine I do :

    netstat -t -l -n

    or, with resolving port name

    netstat -t -l
