    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?

    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.
