Virtual Software Question

Hi guys,

I was looking into setting up some virtual machine that i can access anywhere, i wanted to ask if there was any 'good' virtual machine software that has a web front end. The only software i know about that has this feature is Mircosoft's Virtual server 2005 has anyone used it or knows of any other software that has this feature?

Thanks

Thanks for the info! my next question was going to be adding security to it so that only i could acces the front end. Maybe im going about this the wrong way i want to be able to access my virtual machines from anywhere any ideas? i was thinking the web front end and then find away to seccure it from unwanted people! :)

Well, there are two options for that. Install remote access software on each VM or install remote access software on the computer running the VMs. Both methods can be made secure.

How about using the Microsoft MSTSC. That works fine too.

I was trying out VMWare Server 2 on a x64 Ubuntu box but couldn't get the damned VM to start. I'm guessing it has to do with the box not having a GUI install, but I don't know.

I ended up going back to VirtualBox, since it actually "just works" for me.

YMMV.

I haven't installed VMware server 2 on X less Linux before. I did previously install VMware server 1 however, and despite not having Xorg installed it did require a number of the Xorg libraries to run without actually running Xorg. As VMware server 2 has the same code base but different front end, it's entirely possible that it also requires some Xorg libraries even if the computer you are running it on does not actually run Xorg.

It was having problems building kernel modules, which needed a fix for it.

I don't know what the underlying problem was, but I went back to VBox, since it worked for me.

Less frustration is good.

Might try it with an X server installed and see what happens.

That works yes, but that isn't very secure by default. Could tunnel it over SSH, as a sort of 'all in one' solution UltraVNC is probably better.

Security is the key in this business, so you are right.
