trying to use the java SDK to connect via vboxwebsrv.exe. I see a connection at
the web sevice but get the following exception from the connect
command:reasonText argument for createFault was passed NULLThis is the basic
code I am using :
> VirtualBoxManager mgr = VirtualBoxManager.createInstance(null);try {   
mgr.connect("http://localhost:18083", "", "");}catch (VBoxException e) {   
return new Error("connect:" + e.getMessage());}

It appears that it's authentication that is failing. The following command
switches off authentication:

VBoxManage setproperty websrvauthlibrary null

All is well :)
