I need to test a few things related to remote apps on Windows Server 2008 R2. The host system is Windows 10 and I installed Windows Server 2008 R2 in VirtualBox.
- Of course, I enabled the server for Remote Display (port 3389) in VirtualBox settings and I also allowed connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop in the system properties of the guest. Now, I can access the desktop from Windows 10, using the IPv4 address and the port 3389.
- I installed Remote Desktop Services and added a new application into the RemoteApp Manager. I created the .rdp file and copied it to the Windows 10 host system.
- Now, when I try to run it, I get an error about the remote computer not being found. I can see that
WIN-U28S71NJR4Kinside the file. If I change it to the IP I use for Remote Desktop Connection, then I get a login dialog with my Windows 10 account and an option for using another account. If I insert the password for my Windows 10 account it says that the remote computer does not support RemoteApp.
- When I run it from the server, the RDP file initiates the applications correctly
So, I don't know what am I missing. Is it possible to access remote applications hosted on VirtualBox Windows Server 2008 R2 from Windows 10?
