I use api /api2/json/nodes/{node}/qemu/{vmid}/vncproxy
it return cert, ticket, port, user

How use this info connect via external vnc viwer (tightvnc, tigervnc, ... ? )

I tried use tigervnc −SecurityTypes=X509Vnc -X509CA "path to file with cert"

But it write
CConn: connected to host port 5900

CConnection: Server supports RFB protocol version 3.8
CConnection: Using RFB protocol version 3.8

CConnection: No matching security types
CConn: No matching security types

Now i can set password via /api2/json/nodes/{node}/qemu/{vmid}/monitor
and connect tigervnc host:port
Is connection secure ?
How i can use cert and ticket for create connection more secure ?
