Unless you actually have a network defined in libvirt that is named 
"rednet", this configuration makes no sense. I can say with 99% 
certainty that you don't want a listen type of "network" - this is 
really only useful for large installations where guests are migrating 
between multiple hosts.

1) leave this part of the guest's configuration at its default as 
created by virt-manager or virt-install.

2) either use virt-manager and double click on the guest's icon, or (as 
root) run "virt-viewer guestname" from a shell on the host.
