Description Andrei Stepanov 2017-01-09 12:18:13 UTC
remote-viewer silently exits if qemu spice/vnc server closes connection.
This seriously confuses users. As they do not know the what have happened.

It would be fine a have pop-up message with a message something like:

"You were disconnected from virtual machine."

+ A reason (optionally): lost connection, qemu crashed, etc...

+ Button: OK

Comment 2 Pavel Grunt 2017-02-24 15:19:27 UTC
If the server crashes than it probably cannot send a message to the client with the reason of dropping the connection.
Disconnecting by another client - it is easy to prevent by setting a password
Disconnecting because the shutdown - I believe a pop up saying "You have turned off your VM" is not very useful

Maybe I miss some useful usecase - feel free to reopen with it.
