Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management

Installing on FreeBSD

These instructions describe installing the RemoteBox client and assume you have root privileges. VirtualBox must also be installed on the server and configured to accept connections from RemoteBox. Instructions for installing VirtualBox and configuring it as a service can be found in the RemoteBox manual.
Repository Install
FreeBSD has RemoteBox in its official ports and binary repositories and can be launched from the applications menu after installed. It can be installed as follows:


Binary Package Example:
        pkg install remotebox freerdp tigervnc
Ports Example (portmaster):
        portmaster net/remotebox net/freerdp net/tigervnc
Tarball Install
Install the required dependencies as follows:


Binary Package Example:
        pkg install p5-Gtk2 p5-SOAP-Lite freerdp tigervnc
Ports Example (portmaster):
            portmaster x11-toolkits/p5-Gtk2 net/p5-SOAP-Lite net/freerdp net/tigervnc
To launch RemoteBox, unpack the RemoteBox tarball and run the 'remotebox' executable.
  • If installing freerdp from ports, ensure you build it with X11 and sound support
  • If p5-libwww is installed from ports, it should be built with https support
