       virt-viewer - display the graphical console for a virtual machine


       virt-viewer [OPTIONS] DOMAIN-NAME|ID|UUID


       virt-viewer is a minimal tool for displaying the graphical console of a
       virtual machine. The console is accessed using the VNC or SPICE
       protocol. The guest can be referred to based on its name, ID, or UUID.
       If the guest is not already running, then the viewer can be told to
       wait until is starts before attempting to connect to the console The
       viewer can connect to remote hosts to lookup the console information
       and then also connect to the remote console using the same network
