Accessing Remote Desktop Served by VBoxHeadless via SSH

– Make sure Xming is installed and connectable via SSH (putty) on Windows
– Execute the following, given that the name of the virtual machine is “Windows 7”:
VBoxHeadless --startvm "Windows 7"

You can connect to this machine via rdesktop locally, using swiss german keyboard, and forward it over ssh through xming by:
rdesktop -k de-ch localhost:3389
