RDP to Virtualbox Guest hosted on Digital Ocean
I’m not sure if this is possible using Digital Ocean as a hosting environment but here goes -
I’m setting up a Virtualbox guest machine running Windows 10 on a droplet running CentOS 7.
Users would need to be able to use Windows Remote Desktop to connect directly into the Virtualbox guest OS running Windows 10 from machines not connected to any internal network (i.e. running them with only direct internet connections).
I’ve tried various configurations, port forwarding in both the CentOS environment and the Virtualbox setup.
I can connect to the droplet using both SSH and XRDP - from there I can connect into the guest Win 10 OS running on the virtualbox - however I need to know if its possible to bypass the connection to the droplet and connect directly into the Virtualbox guest from any machine connected to the internet.
