I am Student in Application Development and I am running into some problems when using the Proxmox VE API.

I am trying to set up a Websocket through which I manage "the vnc console". The idea is to have the vm's "console" displayed on an xterrm console. As the internet & documentation knew to tell. I first sent a postrequest to /api2/json/nodes/{node}/qemu/{vmid}/vncproxy and this works without any problems. I get back all the necessary information for sending the request to /vncwebsocket.

But when I send a GET request to the endpoint with parameters /api2/json/nodes/{node}/qemu/{vmid}/vncwebsocket?port=19000&vncticket=ticket

Error message: property is missing and it is not optional

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance/
Apologies for my poor English.
