Ticket #7405 (new defect)
When RDP to VM is terminated badly - VM still holds RDP session open

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Now my Vista machine is a piece on junk and likes to lock up. So it needs cold rebooting. The problem is that the vrdp tcp connection stays established on the Linux machine even after rebooting the vista machine. So I cannot reconnect back to my running VM and also have not been able to force it to disconnect. I've tried below with no success.
VBoxMange controlvm winxp_work vrdp off VBoxMange controlvm winxp_work vrdp on
I see from netstat that the VM still thinks there is a RDP session established. Even when the keepalive timer times out - it just resets rather then closing the connection. Occasionally if I wait long enough - I can reconnect - but we are talking 15min plus.
- Virtual Box installed (3.2.8r64453) on 64bit Linux host (amd64 all distro version).
- Win XP 32 bit guest installed with latest Virtual Box tools.
- VM started with "VBoxHeadless -s winxp_work &"
- VBoxHeadless disown'ed from bash to stop it killing it if I close shell
- Access VM from Vista 64 via remote desktop
- Linux iceweasel 126.96.36.199-2 #7 SMP Tue Aug 11 17:12:39 MDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
- Using a bridged interface
Does anyone have any ideas how I can convince the VM that the RDP session is over - or maybe I need to change some global tcp settings somewhere?
