Re: [libvirt-users] virt-manager thru window's remote desktop



Hi,

virt-manager is runnig on the KVM Host.
I want to do something like method-1 instead of method-2.

--[Method 1]--
<User Client PC>:
  + Windows PC with Remote Desktop Client   or
  + Linux with Terminal Server Client

<KVM Host>:
  + CentOS or Red Hat Linux
  + Virt Manager
  + Guest OS
  + XRDP (Remote Desktop Server)


instead of


--[Method 2]--
<User Client PC>:
  + Windows PC with VNCviewer   or
  + Linux with VNCviewer

<KVM Host>:
  + CentOS or Red Hat Linux
  + Virt Manager
  + Guest OS
  + VNC Server

Is virt-manager running on the kvm host or guest?

If its the guest you cant connect to local host.  The VM is not aware its a VM so you have to connect to the KVM server using the remote connection URI.  Like this ..

qemu+ssh://user kvmhost tld/

Id recommend looking up setting a normal user to manage KVM so you can use SSH + auth key.
