    Question Can't VNC to guest VM in 1.9

    I'm new to Proxmox VE and have just installed it on a test server. Although teh test went well and I can create VMs easily I can't connect to them. I can't VNC to them by typing <host IP>:<VM ID> as I've seen suggested in some posts and I can't see them in the Monitor in Firefox or IE. What more do I need to do?

    Proxmox VE has an integrated java based VNC console, just click on "Open VNC console".

    On your browser, you just need to install java plugin. what OS do you run on your desktop?

    just take a look on some video tutorial, e.g. this one:

    Thanks for the quick reply, I've got the browser based VNC console running by re-installing Java and although this helps a lot I really need to be able to use something like VNC viewer from my Windows 7 desktop. Is there something I need to configure on the host to allow this?

    search the forum, there is a howto somewhere. but why do you need this? the web console works very well on windows 7.
