authentication is ignored: login only works without credentials

Reported by: paulbeard Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.2.12 Keywords: rdp authentication "OS X"
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other


I just set up an instance of VBox on a FreeBSD 8.3 host to run a Linux guest, and wanted to access it from OS X using Screen Sharing (Apple's version of VNC). I could connect to the host on port 3389 but it took me awhile to realize that the authentication I had enabled based on this page was meaningless: no password was required.

03/06/2013 17:41:04 Protocol version sent 3.3, using 3.3 03/06/2013 17:41:10 authProcessClientMessage: authentication failed from 03/06/2013 17:41:10 rfbAuthProcessClientMessage: password check failed 03/06/2013 17:41:10 Client gone

I'm just glad it works now.

Please attach the VBox.log file for such a VM session, mainly to see your exact setup.
