I have a problem. I want to connect with the SPICE console to my PVE server. I can't do it. I can't do it. I'm asking for your help.

It is a PVE server v4.3-9. I access it through the Chrome browser on my Windows 7 pro 64-bit workstation. I enter the network address and port. I log in with the root administrator account.

I click on PVE.

I click on >_ Shell > SPICE

A téléchargement.vv file is downloaded.

I open the file téléchargement.vv with virt-viewer 8.0

I have a window that opens with "connection to the display server" but nothing afterwards.

I tried renaming the téléchargement.vv file to 1.vv. Same thing.

If anyone can help me, that would be nice.

Thank you very much.
