No, what you're thinking of is vboxmanage, which is used to control
virtualbox. Vboxheadless is just that, a headless interface to the
virtual machine, which lets you connect to the first physical console
inside the system via vrdp on tcp 3389, or you can disable the vrdp
option when running vboxheadless, and connect to the guest via ssh, if
the guest has a configured ssh server. Also, note that the vrdp server
I'm talking about here is provided by vboxheadless, and not a vrdp
server which might be running on a windows guest, though you could use
that too, if you wanted.

Yes, it does.
