Feature for Guest Additions (execute guest commands)

Reported by: pnash Owned by:

Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


I would like to launch Guest Applications from my Host. This would improve integration between my real and virtual machines, and create the illusion of natively running applications (which WINE achieves)

I was thinking of writing a Java App to listen to a specific port and launch specified applications with arguments (this could be limited by I.P and application name for security reasons).
