I am getting the error '/bin/nc -l -p 5900 -w 10 -c '/usr/sbin/qm vncproxy 100 2>/dev/null'' failed: exit code 1 when i tried to open a vm with VNC console.

I tried to check in forum few users were posted same error. But i couldn't find any solution to fix this error.

Please let me know if anyone have solution for this error.
