After fixing the problems in the previous report(2253), the vnc proxy attempts to connect to the vnc port opened by kvm. However, the kvm is only listening on localhost, not globally.

root@opennebula:/etc/one# tail -n2 /var/log/one/novnc.log
1: connecting to: virt-1.*************:6539
1: handler exception: [Errno 111] Connection refused
root@virt-1:/var/log/libvirt/qemu# netstat -anp|grep 6539
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 24839/kvm ==

I do not see a reason to reconfigure libvirt/qemu/kvm to listen on for those vnc ports. virt-manager can proxy vnc over the ssh connection, why can't opennebula?

virtmanager and KVM runs on the same host. That's not the case for OpenNebula that operates in a distributed setting.
