The virt-manager console is basically just a plain old boring VNC client.
It uses GTK-VNC to establish its VNC network connection, and that doesn't
do anything unusual AFAIK. We use getaddrinfo() to resolve the hostname,
and then try each of its results in turn, until we succesfully connect
to the VNC server. We don't explicitly bind() to the client port, just
let the kernel pick it for us. The code in question, is the "gvnc_open_host"
method from gvnc.c, which starts at about line 2910
