Description Uri Lublin 2013-08-07 15:35:28 UTC
Description of problem:
Allow controller to pass proxy information to the spice client (remote-viewer).

This matches spice-active-x bug 909496.
The following is copied from bug 909496:

property name is "Proxy", it's a string with the same content description as environment variable or the virt-viewer configuration file. Also described in spice-protocol:

    The value must be of the form [protocol://]<host>[:port]
    The proxy string may be specified with a protocol:// prefix to specify
    alternative proxy protocols.
    If no protocol is specified in the proxy string or if the string
    doesn't match a supported one, the proxy will be treated as a HTTP

    If no port is specified port 3128 is used (the default port for squid)

The string passed from RHEVM is forwarded to the client without any validation.
