cann't show vnc server status in monitor via "info vnc" when connect to a listening vnc with "reverse"
Last modified: 2017-06-15 03:36:30 EDT
Description of problem:
connect to a listening VNC client via a "reverse" connection, the client is specified by the display, but "info vnc" cann't get the vnc server status in the monitor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -r && rpm -q qemu-kvm
Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch a listening vnc on host A by:
# vncviewer -listen 7000
2.launch qemu-kvm process and try to connect to the listening vnc on host B by:
3.run "info vnc" in the monitor.
(qemu) info vnc
after the step 3, "info vnc" cann't get the vnc server status.
"info vnc" can get the vnc server status in the monitor.
corner case, not critical, deferring to rhel6.4
This is more like a missing feature than a bug. Also, HMP is not supported in RHEL, so the only reason to implement this as a RHEL feature would be a real need from one of our stack's components (vs. "this is nice to the end user").
I'd close this as WONTFIX, but I'll let Ademar decide.
PS: You're welcome to report this upstream.
Closing as wontfix. It will get to RHEL7 automatically if fixed upstream on time, but we won't focus on it for now.
