Re: [virt-tools-list] Debugging TLS connection between virt-viewer and libvirt running on separate hosts



Is the virt-tools list supposed to be devel only? (I did post this
question a month ago to libvirt-users, with no response (which I
supposed was because it was a virt-manager/virt-viewer type of
problem...)

Thanks,
Will
