Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol RDP 6.0 or later is installed on this computer 'I have no issue getting to my server page using Windows 8.1 or 7. I have used the compability mode for my login page but its a no go.
With the VirtualBox's 'Remote Desktop' feature, you can remotely control your virtual machine desktop from a typical RDP client.
Note : this feature requires the installation of the Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack.
1. Remote desktop without authentication
By default, the Remote Desktop of VirtualBox uses port 3389 (the default port of Microsoft RDP) and doesn't use authentication.
To avoid the port conflict problem with the one used by Windows, VirtualBox recommends using a port between 5000 and 5050
Once the remote desktop is enabled, Windows will display a security alert when you start the virtual machine.
Click 'Allow access' to allow remote desktop access from another PC on the network.
Install Rdp 6.0 Windows 10 Iso
Since this remote desktop is managed by VirtualBox, you will need to connect in RDP on the host PC by specifying the port specified in your virtual machine's settings.
In other words, in our case, the desktop of our virtual machine will be available on IP address 10.0.0.5 (the IP of our host PC) on port 5000 (which is the one indicated for our virtual machine).
To use this desktop remotely, simply launch the built-in Remote Desktop Connection program and enter this address : 10.0.0.5:5000
Ignore the warning that appears.
Now, you have access the desktop of your virtual machine remotely.
2. Remote desktop with Windows authentication Windows (External)
By default, the remote desktop is not secure, because everyone can use it without using a login or password.
It's therefore best to use one of the authentication methods provided by VirtualBox.
If you select the external authentication method, by default, VirtualBox will authenticate users through the accounts of the host computer.
Note that under Windows, the account used to connect to a VirtualBox remote desktop must have a password. Otherwise, the connection will be refused.
As you can see in the VirtualBox preferences, the VRDP authentication (including the 'remote desktop' feature available for virtual machines) uses the VBoxAuth library by default.
This will authenticate users through user accounts of the host computer.
Install Rdp 6.0 Windows 10 Pro
To be able to connect to a remote desktop via the Windows user account on our physical PC, we will create a password for our user account.
Now, our account is protected by a password.
Small subtlety, to be able to connect with the RDP client of Windows, you will have to :
Install Rdp 6.0 Windows 10 64-bit
- specify the IP address of the host PC + the port you have chosen in the settings of your virtual machine
- check the 'Allow me to save credentials' box. Otherwise, the connection will fail.
Enter the credentials of a user account of the host PC and click OK.
That's it, you have access to the desktop of your virtual machine through the Windows RDP client.-->
This article describes the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client requirements to use Terminal Services Web Access in Windows Server.

Install Rdp 6.0 Windows 10
Terminal Services (TSWeb) in Windows Server 2008 and Remote Desktop Services (RDWeb) in Windows 2008 R2 are role-based services that let users start RemoteApp and Desktop Connection from a web browser. RemoteApp and Desktop Connection provides a customized view of RemoteApp programs and virtual desktops to users. When a user starts a RemoteApp program, a Terminal Services session is started on the Windows Server 2008-based terminal server that hosts the RemoteApp program.
To start a RemoteApp program, a user connects to a website that is hosted on the Windows Server 2008-based TS Web Access server. When the user connects to the website, a list of available RemoteApp programs appears. Additionally, TS Web Access lets users connect to the remote desktop of any server or client computer on which the user has the required permissions.
If you are using Windows Server 2008 R2, you must use RDC client version 7.
You must have the RDC client version 6.1 installed to use TS Web Access with the following operating systems:
Windows Server 2008
Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3)
RDC 6.1 (6.0.6001) supports Remote Desktop Protocol 6.1.
If you are experiencing this issue on a Windows Vista-based computer, you must have Windows Vista Service Pack 1 installed on your computer.
If you are experiencing this issue on a Windows XP-based computer, you must have Windows XP Service Pack 3 or RDC 6.1 installed on your computer.
