download PDF
To set up graphical desktop sharing between the host and the guest machine using Virtual Network Computing (VNC), a VNC server has to be configured on the guest you wish to connect to. To do this, VNC has to be specified as a graphics type in the devices element of the guest's XML file. For further information, see Section 23.17.11, “Graphical Framebuffers”.
To connect to a VNC server, use the virt-viewer utility or the virt-manager interface.
