Question

Is there a way to add my Ubuntu droplet's vnc access to Gnome Boxes?

I have just stumbled upon Gnome Boxes on my laptop which I had never heard of before. Apparently, it allows a very easy management for virtual boxes. I was wondering if there is a way to add my DigitalOcean droplet to it. Thank you!

Not that I am aware of. To the best of my knowledge you cannot add outside VNC servers to Gnome Boxes since it does not act as a standalone VNC client but rather works in conjunction with virtualization software deployed on your machine or elsewhere.
