Installing on FreeBSD

These instructions were tested on FreeBSD 13 with RemoteBox 3.0, other configurations may vary. They describe installing the RemoteBox client and assume you have root privileges to perform the install. In order to connect from RemoteBox, VirtualBox will need to be installed and configured on the server and if necessary, appropriate firewall ports will need to be opened.

RemoteBox is available in the official FreeBSD repositories which may be sufficient for your needs, although the version may differ from the latest. It can be installed as follows:

pkg install remotebox freerdp tigervnc

Ports Example (portmaster):
