  tail -f ~/.VirtualBox/Machines/VM_NAME/Logs/VBox.log

when you are trying to connect via rdesktop. If the connection
refused then the RDP server is either not enabled or the RDP
server is enabled but refuses the connection for some reason.
The reason should be visible from reading the VBox.log file.
