VirtualBox – Virtual Machine Client
I looked around and tried various VM Clients before finding one that suited my needs. I wanted something free, actively developed and a forum that was active (there’s always teething problems). Ideally they embraced the OVF standard for VM’s and supported the “in-development” OS’s from both MS and the Open Source Community — in the end there was only one choice – VirtualBox
One of the great things about the VirtualBox client is that it supports headless virtual machine and implements an RDP interface to them. Allowing you to easily connect & control it from both Windows and *nix.
Just point the RDP client to the IP Address of VM Host & using the port displayed – you essentially have a console connection to it. There’s some handy extras like clipboard and folder sharing, private networks and dynamic virtual HD’s.
