Description:

RemoteBox is a graphical tool (GTK) writeen in Perl, which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may for example have a root server on the internet, a server at home or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests.

The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users whist allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface which are exposed when running the VirtualBox web service (i.e. vboxwebsrv). You can also use RemoteBox simply as an 'alternative' interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.

RemoteBox runs on a variety of operating systems including Linux, *BSD and MacOS X and the server can run any operating system supported by VirtualBox.
