      Description

      Creating ticket on behalf of Seth Vidal ( email send on community list ).

      Pls find email below:

      I was setting up an instance of euca this week/weekend on rhel6. I ran into a problem and a vnc connection to my instance would have been a big help. I worked out the problem but then I started to investigate vnc support.

      I asked and was told to uncomment the vnc display line in the libvirt.xsl on my NCs. I did this but when I used virt-manager to try to look at the console - I was told it could not connect.

      So I dug and dug - and eventually discovered that in the libvirt.xsl the line I was told to uncomment was:

      <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' keymap='en-us' listen='0.0.0.0'/>

      that line is fine - except for listen='0.0.0.0'

      If you set that then virt-manager won't try to setup any ssh tunneling to get to the nc itself.

      if you just leave listen='0.0.0.0' off entirely it all works just fine.

      So why not leave it off and change the example libvirt.xsl to reflect that?

            Shashi Mysore, this was merged for 3.3.0. I just checked a 3.3.0 cloud and it has the listen line removed. You can remove this from the 3.4-PM.

            Assessment

            This line is in the /etc/eucalyptus/libvirt.xsl file in Eucalyptus 3.4.2:

            <!-- <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' listen='0.0.0.0' keymap='en-us' -->
            

            The 'listen' variable showed back up.
