I've set up remote hypervisor on a Linux host and now I want to set up a remote virtualbox guest.
The configuration in GNS3 is obvious and points to the remote machine by IP/TCP. On the linux host Virtualbox is installed and the VM is ready for use.

How do I get Virtualbox to listen for port 11525? Is there any need for a modified Vboxwrapper on the linux host?

Thanks in advance!

Just launch on your Linux, there are options if you do --help but the defaults should be fine. Then start GNS3, go to Preferences -> VirtualBox, untick "Enable Vbox Manager" and "Use Vbox Manager when importing", put "<ip_address_of_your_linux_machine>:11525" , then add. Click Test to confirm everything is ok.
