Virtual Machine Viewer

Virtual Machine Viewer (virt-viewer) is a lightweight interface for interacting with the graphical display of a virtualized guest OS. It uses GTK-VNC and libvirt to look up the VNC server details associated with the guest. It is intended as a replacement for the traditional vncviewer client, since the latter does not support SSL/TLS encryption of x509 certificate authentication.
