So I was thinking about installing a desktop environment on the host following this guide, and I'm wondering if it's possible to establish a VNC or some other type of connection into a VM from the host (not through the browser gui)? And if it is, is this the fastest connection to and from a VM?

Thanks!

hi,

you'll still need to use the browser GUI on the PVE host.
you can choose between VNC or SPICE [0].

And if it is, is this the fastest connection to and from a VM?
connecting locally is the fastest option yes. for better performance and more features SPICE is recommended.
