RemoteBox is a special application that can be used to manage or administering VirtualBox from a remote computer. With RemoteBox we can install, start, stop the virtual machine on VirtualBox host from other computer. Here I want to show you how to install RemoteBox on Ubuntu 14.04. Its pretty easy to install RemoteBox 1.8 (the most recent version) on Ubuntu 14.04 since it’s already integrated in GetDeb repository.
