Hello list,

Here are 2 questions haven't got answers through manual, google, or
vbox-users maillist,

1, I don't know whether it's since v2.1.0 that vbox listens on port
5000, for debugging? Why not just listen on localhost, or is there a way
to turn off listening?

2, I'm using NAT and forwarding ssh port to the guest, is there a <key>
for `VBoxManage setextradata' to bind the HostPort to localhost only?

Thanks in advance.
