Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management

Installing RemoteBox on Mageia Linux

These instructions describe installing the RemoteBox client and may require root privileges. VirtualBox must also be configured to accept connections from RemoteBox. For instructions, consult the RemoteBox manual.

Repository Install

RemoteBox is available in the official Mageia repositories and can be launched from the applications menu after installation. Install RemoteBox as follows:
urpmi remotebox

Tarball Install

The required dependencies can be installed as follows:
urpmi perl-Gtk2 perl-SOAP-Lite freerdp
To launch RemoteBox, unpack the RemoteBox tarball and run the 'remotebox' executable.

• If you wish to use rdesktop instead, replace the freerdp package with rdesktop and configure the RemoteBox preferences accordingly.
