RDP via ipv6 on windows

Reported by: Deathbob Owned by:
Priority: major Component: RDP
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2 Keywords: ipv6
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: all


On windows the RDP server does not listen on ipv6, as such you cannot connect to the rdp server from an ipv6 connection.

I would like to add that this issue is also present on a Linux host (Ubuntu 10.04) with VirtualBox 3.2.4 (installed from the apt repo). I started an XP VM with:

VBoxManage startvm XP --type vrdp

and according to "sudo netstat -plunt", VBoxHeadless is only listening on IPv4 and not IPv6. With netcat6, I can verify that the connection to the VRDP port is refused while with netcat, the connection can be opened.

I also need the "VRDP over ipv6" support. Please add it.

I would like to confirm that this support should be included.

Still present in 4.1.6.

Same error on Linux host (Ubuntu 12.04 amd64) with VirtualBox 4.1.22.

VRDP not listen on IPv6.

$ sudo netstat -plunt | grep VB
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN      13707/VBoxHeadless

Please, fix it.
