Use TigerVNC. With TigerVNC (a variation of TightVNC) you can lock the Alt and Ctrl modifier keys via the menu. To open the menu press the F8 key.
Update after reading all comments on all answers: I see your problem at first place is bridged connectivity between Guest and Host while providing internet by NAT to guest. I will show how to do that too with few scripts on Fedora 20 HOST!! Scripts may be working for modern debian or may not! On HOST machine, place this script in /root/ or wherever, ...
Probably a stupid question, but why don't you login to your guest and shutdown from there? Unless you have a good reason for not installing sshd and accessing the VM really through VBox, I'd go for a script that just issues an ssh shutdown -h now. To be honest, I'd create a script for every machine that properly shuts it down and perform some checkups while ...
You have not explained what your actual goal is, beyond just using a computer that runs linux -- which apparently you've already been doing anyway for ~10 years. To be totally honest (since this is definitely an "opinion based" question), all the fussing with different distros borderline absurd. This is not to say they aren't different in superficial ways, ...
I would strongly reccomend getting into Linux environment (Debian based one preferably since it is free). If you want to really get hang of the things I would also suggest you to install VirtualBox or VMWare player in windows and try your hands on in Ubuntu guest operating systems. There is an even better option if you do not like VirtualBox. In your ...
For Windows guests, I use Debian Wheezy 64bit with the xfce-desktop and virtualbox-4.2 (from virtualbox.org). Note that you can run a 64 bit guest on 32 bit linux, however, you would not be able to support larger RAM configurations in the guest. I get reasonable performance and stability on my older hardware with only 8GB DDR2 (Q9550 processor). If you need ...
Yes you can check /sys/kernel/security what's available. See also dmesg or /proc/cmdline for boot settings. If your config.gz available then zgrep CONFIG_SECURITY /proc/config.gz else grep CONFIG_SECURITY /boot/config-`uname -r`
If you read the instructions, it says clearly: Three things are required to make a Linux box into a router. From a hardware standpoint you need two NICs. Hence, unless you use a virtual machine when you can create as many virtual NICs you like, no, you can't make your system a router.
But it should, indeed, be in there; try an "ls -al /var/spool/mail/root". That should show it to you. Note, however, that you will only have that one mail file; "mbox"-formatted mail (which is what's generally stored in /var/spool/mail/) compiles each folder into one aggregate ASCII file that the client then parses. This is notably different from the way ...
The ISOs of both supported architectures (x86 - 32 & 64 bit) can be found on the Turnkey Linux SourceForge download page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/turnkeylinux/files/iso/ For installing on VirtualBox you could also try the VMDK builds (unzip and add the VMDK vHDD to a new VM) here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/turnkeylinux/files/vmdk/
