Ticket #6417 (new defect)
RPD not scaling well
|Reported by:||chesterman||Owned by:|
I saw some forums on the web complaining about the rdp session in virtualbox not scaling well. I'm having some weird problems.
I understand that when i connect to my virtualmachine via the embedded rdp server of vbox i'm getting some sort of console session instead of a real terminal server session in the guest OS, so i should change the resolution manually in the video configuration of the guest OS in order to get the resolution i want.
But if I inadvertently maximize my rdp client window (doesn't matter if i'm using mstsc or rdesktop-vrdp), my screen stop refreshing. The session still works, but i have to keep disconnecting and connecting again to have screen updates in order to change manually the resolution back to what was set before.
The host machine doesn't have a GUI, so all the work was done using VBoxManage and VBoxHeadless.
The host is a Debian Lenny AMD64 and the host is a Windows Server 2008 Standard 32bit.
