Another question regarding qemu-guest-agent. What if i have more then
one VM running on a host? Is the configuration for any of them the same
or do i have to adjust some settings?

    <channel type='unix'>
      <source mode='bind' path='/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/f16x86_64.agent'/>
      <target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0'/>
      <address type='virtio-serial' controller='0' bus='0' port='1'/>

I mean, do i have to use a different port or something for each VM?
