Virt-viewer

Since I play with KVM, I always find new knowledge around it.

Several weeks ago, I found that it was easy to remote-desktop / connect to my VMs using desktop environment. KVM provide vitr-viewer as command line tool to connect them.

On Ubuntu 10.04, I did : sudo apt-get install virt-viewer

After that, if you want to connect it, just type :
virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://your_domain/system

That command will open a VNC connection to you. Just enter your password, and you're connected. Don't forget to change your_domain with your setting.
