Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management

RemoteBox allows you to administer an installation of VirtualBox residing on another machine such as a server, as if it was installed locally. You can also interact with the displays of the guests. This allows you to treat VirtualBox just like an installation of Xen, KVM or VMware ESX. Includes features such as:

  • View and interact with the guest’s display via RDP, including sound;
  • Create, edit, configure most common guest settings, including setting the guest BIOS configuration including the BIOS image and advanced options such as HPET, Page Fusion, Large Pages, CPU Hotplugging, CPU Throttling, …
  • Attach USB devices and set USB device filters;
  • Stop, start, pause and save guest states, including snapshots;
  • Provision and attach storage including hard disks, CDs/DVDs and floppies.

    New version available -> remotebox 3.1-1~xtradeb1

    * New upstream release.
    – Changed the RemoteBox logo
    – Various minor GUI tweaks
    – Added button to save the message log to a text file. Might be useful for debugging purposes.
    – Fixed: Regression introduced in 3.0 caused Connection Profiles dialog to essentially stop working correctly, potentially losing existing profiles in the process.
    – Fixed: Regression introduced in 3.0 meant that NAT rules were not shown for IPv4 and IPv6 networks
    – Fixed column sorting in the VMM (Virtual Media Manager)
    – Fixed various list selection bugs. The get_selected() method under GTK3 returns both the model and the iterator, not just the iterator as with GTK2
    – RemoteBox is no longer bundled with a PDF manual. Documentation is now exclusively maintained on the RemoteBox web site.

    New version available -> remotebox 2.7-1~xtradeb1

    * New upstream release.
    – RemoteBox now requires VirtualBox 6.1.x
    – VirtualBox now requires hardware virtualization and no longer supports software virtualization. Removed associated options from RemoteBox.
    – Removed option of setting the video side-channel quality for an RDP connection. This option is largely unsupported by RDP clients and not particularly useful.
    – Added support for the Virtio-SCSI controller
    – Added support for the AMD PCNet-ISA/NE2100 network card
    – Added support for nested hardware virtualization (VT-x/AMD-V) for supported processors
    – Added toolbar buttons in the VMM to create new hard disk images, new floppy disk images (from 360K to 2.88MB) and move media to new locations
    – Newly created floppy disk images can be optionally pre-formatted with FAT12
    – Added a menu option when attached storage for creating a new floppy disk image and automatically attaching it
    – Added option to specify MAC address policy when importing an appliance
    – Added options to specify MAC address policy and include ISO files when exporting an appliance
    – Added options to Keep disk UUIDs, specify MAC policy and keep disk names when cloning a guest
    – Added OS icon for Windows 2019 64bit
    – Rewrote the copy and disk conversion code, should be cleaner and faster
    – Creating a new guest, now uses the ApplyDefaults API call which was broken in previous versions of VirtualBox. This allows a lot of code cleanups and faster guest creation
    – Fixed incorrect URL on About window
    – Various code cleanups
