       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.

       -k, --kiosk
	   Start in kiosk mode. In this mode, the application will start in fullscreen with
	   minimal UI. It will prevent the user from quitting or performing any interaction
	   outside of usage of the remote desktop session.

	   Note that it can't offer a complete secure solution by itself. Your kiosk system must
	   have additional configuration and security settings to lock down the OS. In
	   particular, you must configure or disable the window manager, limit the session
	   capabilities, use some restart/watchdog mechanism, disable VT switching etc.

       --kiosk-quit <never|on-disconnect>
	   By default, when kiosk mode is enabled, virt-viewer will remain open when the
	   connection to the remote server is terminated. By setting kiosk-quit option to "on-
	   disconnect" value, virt-viewer will quit instead. Please note that --reconnect takes
	   precedence over this option, and will attempt to do a reconnection before it quits.

       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://example.org/ 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://root@example.org/ demo
