Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
This release adds remote-viewer support for proxy authentication. With this update, SPICE can connect via a proxy that requires authentication (such as user name and password) in order to allow only authenticated users to connect via the proxy. As a result, when remote-viewer is configured to use a proxy requiring user authentication, the SPICE client passes authentication information to the proxy, and users connecting with the proxy are authenticated.

Comment 3 Christophe Fergeau 2015-06-05 15:25:11 UTC
Should be addressed in virt-viewer 1.0 or newer  ( https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/virt-viewer.git/commit/?id=d1d53d0c8b5600f61e55e472c592ebc86a65ee6f ) and spice-gtk 0.24 or newer ( http://cgit.freedesktop.org/spice/spice-gtk/commit/?id=8cbdc3d2d6ca6d8f9b8e75c0c11f0e89f4427eb2 and previous commits). The 3.6 rebase will have these versions (and a new enough glib) so this should address this RFE.
