VBoxManage Android controls the virtual machine by 'VBoxManage' command via SSH connection. So, everything you need to provide are a Linux SSH server address and login information, and make sure the login user is able to execute 'VBoxManage' command to control the virtual machines. It's not necessary to install any additional software on your server.

The virtual machine can be started as Headless mode, which is typical in server environment. So, please make sure the virtual machine is ready to boot in headless mode if you choose headless in the settings. For more information about Headless mode, see:

    I've been looking for a remote application to help me monitor my servers. Web service is good but rather clunky lately. With this you don't need vboxweb-service.

    Just virtualized my home servers. Auto starting when the host starts wasn't working so I use this as an alternative. As others say SSH doesn't always connect but I can't guarantee this is the root cause. Might be something for the dev to look into.

    It's stright forward and easy. But it almost never works over 3g. Even though other apps can connect to my ssh under exact same conditions
