Windows virt-viewer should ignore trailing '/' for SpiceProxyDefault value
Last modified: 2015-09-22 09:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Usual way people define value for http proxy, like http_proxy env variable read by many many cli tools on Linux, is in the way:
(fqdn can be replaced by resolvable name or with an IP)
Anyway, virt-viewer does _NOT_ use http proxy when it gets spice proxy value with trailing '/'. This is very annoying.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sf18 - 0.5.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have SpiceProxyDefault without trailing '/'
2. open console
3. have SpiceProxyDefault with trailing '/'
4. open console
4. does not even try to use proxy, it just uses direct connection
work as many other apps/tools
I wonder if there is any spec for this...
Anyway, here is the patch:
confirmed on mingw-virt-viewer-0.5.3-28 -> qa_ack+
