Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management

Installing RemoteBox on OpenBSD

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 OpenBSD repositories and can be launched from the applications menu after installation. Assuming you have remote package installation configured, install RemoteBox as follows:
pkg_add -r remotebox

Tarball Install

Assuming you have your system configured to install remote packages, the required dependencies can be installed as follows:
pkg_add -r freerdp p5-Gtk2 p5-SOAP-Lite
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.
