Resolution not scaling with rdesktop to RDP-server of vbox

Discussions related to using VirtualBox on Linux hosts.

What happens if you do it in this order instead?

nohup VBoxHeadless -s LMCOXP &
rdesktop -a 16 -g 1500x980 -0 LMCOXP &
VBoxManage -nologo controlvm LMCOXP setvideomodehint 1580 980 16


How does it look then? And while testing just to be safe use a smaller resolution so it isn't lack of video memory or something equally stupid.

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I am still having this issue.

Running rdesktop 1.6.0 running on debian lenny and ubuntu jaunty.

Vbox 3.1.0 as the host.

Has anyone managed to find a way to have rdesktop's resolution control actually work?

Got the same problem.

Tried with other machines and OS, and it has run perfectly.
Seems without a doubt an Ubuntu's bug

I used xfreerdp (part of package freerdp-x11) as a replacement of rdesktop and it worked at resizing the screen. Syntax is mostly the same:
xfreerdp -f vbserv
