    Virtualization - KVM - how to view guest on host


    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 8.04 desktop amd64
    KVM


    On host terminal I can create guest .img and start it.

    Create guest .img
    Code:
    # qemu-img create -f qcow2 guest.img 10G
    
    # kvm -hda guest.img -cdrom /dev/scd0 -m 512 -vnc :0

    Start guest.img
    Code:
    # kvm guest.img -vnc :0

    But I can't view/operate guest on host. I must run vncviewer on remote machine terminal;

    $ vncview 192.168.0.110:0


    to view and operate the guest. 192.168.0.110 is host local IP address.


    Please advise how to view and operate guest on host. TIA

    Have you tried using localhost or 127.0.0.1 instead of the lan address?

    Hi,


    Thanks for your advice.


    $ vncviewer localhost
    Code:
    [: 6: ==: unexpected operator
    localhost 5900
    /usr/bin/vncviewer: 28: java: not found

    $ vncviewer 127.0.0.1
    Code:
    [: 6: ==: unexpected operator
    127.0.0.1 5900
    /usr/bin/vncviewer: 28: java: not found

    Also tried as root with the same result.


    $ cat /etc/hosts
    Code:
    127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain  localhost
    127.0.1.1	ubuntu804-desktop
    
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    Solved

    Hi bigtomrodney and folks,


    Problem solved.


    I need "xtightvncviewer" additional to;
    Code:
    tightvncserver
    tightvnc-java
    After installing it. Then "vncviewer 127.0.0.1" works. Thanks.


    Any suggestion on configuring size of the viewer window. TIA
