RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.
Remote Launcher is an easy-to-use tool that enables you to launch applications remotely on your PC via your Android device. It consists of an Android application (proprietary) and a small server program (GPLv2) for your PC. You can configure Remote Launcher to start any application on your PC with a single click on your Android device. For example, it can start your mediacenter, shutdown or restart the computer, or run a custom script. It has been tested on Ubuntu and Windows 7.
The X2Go Client allows you to connect to and control a remote machine running the X2Go Server. You can simulate a complete desktop session or run individual remote applications as if they were running on your local machine. The protocol is secure (via SSH) and very responsive, even over a very slow connection.
