Doc Text:
Feature: Connection dialog should handle connection errors Reason: remote-viewer started without any parameters on command line first opens a small interface which allows user to specify connection parameters. However, it terminates the client when the connection parameters aren't valid. Result (if any): Now the connection dialog handles errors, and allows to correct the connection details and to try a new connection.

Description Tomas Jamrisko 2012-10-08 07:48:19 EDT
Description of problem:
remote-viewer started without any parameters on command line first opens a small interface which allows user to specify connection parameters. The problem is, that it terminates when the connection parameters aren't valid for any reason

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(all; happens on rhel 7, rhel 6, windows) 

How reproducible:
Always 


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start remote-viewer and do not pass any parameters
2. Enter some bogus url
3. try to connect
  
Actual results:
remote-viewer terminates after unsuccessful attempt to connect

Expected results:
It shouldn't quit in this use-case, but rather fall back to gui and give user the "power" to change parameters

Afaik, there is no good incentive to fix this, since remote-viewer is a simple client front-end mainly for RHEV integration. An application like Boxes is better suited to provide nice UI etc. And it's not necessarily so trivial as it involves UI etc.. moving to RFE,
Comment 5 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-17 08:27:40 EDT
I have a few patches to improve this, moving to POST.
Comment 10 tingting zheng 2013-07-04 05:48:41 EDT
I can reproduce this issue with:
virt-viewer-0.5.2-18.el6_4.2.x86_64

Tested it with:
virt-viewer-0.5.6-1.el6.x86_64

After input some bogus url,remote-viewer doesn't quit,it fall back to gui and give user the "power" to change parameters.So move the bug to VERIFIED.
