       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 transport.


       The following options are accepted when running "virt-viewer":

       -h, --help
           Display command line help summary

       -V, --version
           Display program version number

       -v, --verbose
           Display information about the connection

       -c URI, --connect=URI
           Specify the hypervisor connection URI

       -w, --wait
           Wait for the domain to start up before attempting to connect to the console

       -r, --reconnect
           Automatically reconnect to the domain if it shuts down and restarts

       -z PCT, --zoom=PCT
           Zoom level of the display window in percentage. Range 10-200.

       -d, --direct
           Do not attempt to tunnel the console over SSH, even if the main connection URI used

       -a, --attach
           Use libvirt to directly attach to a local display, instead of making a TCP/UNIX socket
           connection. This avoids the need to authentication with the remote display, if
           authentication with libvirt is already allowed.  This option does not work with remote

       -f, --full-screen
           Start with the window maximised to fullscreen

           Print debugging information

       -h HOTKEYS, --hotkeys HOTKEYS
           Override the default hotkey bindings with HOTKEYS. Where HOTKEYS is
           <action1>=<key1>[+<key2>][,<action2>=<key3>[+<key4>]]. Key-names are case-insensitive,
           valid actions are: toggle-fullscreen, release-cursor, smartcard-insert and smartcard-
           remove. Examples:



           Note that hotkeys for which no binding is given are disabled, specifying an empty
           string disables all hotkeys.


       To connect to the guest called 'demo' running under Xen

          virt-viewer demo

       To connect to the guest with ID 7 running under QEMU

          virt-viewer --connect qemu:///system 7

       To wait for the guest with UUID 66ab33c0-6919-a3f7-e659-16c82d248521 to startup and then
       connect, also reconnecting upon restart of VM

          virt-viewer --reconnect --wait 66ab33c0-6919-a3f7-e659-16c82d248521

       To connect to a remote console using TLS

          virt-viewer --connect xen:// demo

       To connect to a remote host using SSH, lookup the guest config and then make a direct non-
       tunnelled connection of the console

          virt-viewer --direct --connect xen+ssh:// demo
