vboxheadless does not honor VRDE server setting

Reported by: vadimrapp Owned by:

Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


I have virtual machine, and in its settings /diaplay/remote display I disable "enable server".

If I start this virtual machine by command vboxheadless -s XP2, on the console there's message "VRDE server is listening on port 3389"; if I then reopen Settings, I find "enable server" checked again.

expectations: server should not be listening, the checkbox should stay

workaround: start vboxheadless with parameter -vrdp off ; this should not be necessary if it's already specified in the settings.

VBoxHeadless always enables the VRDE server by default. You have to use VBoxHeadless --vrde config, then the config setting will be used.
