- Install CygWin w/ virt-manager, xinit and openssh
Configure PWDless SSH via RSA Key to KVM Host
Note: If you place your private key inside ~/.ssh/id_rsa and make sure permissions are the following SSH will automatically try using the Private Key. To create the directory .ssh with proper permissions and create the "known_hosts" file, I ususally SSH into KVM Host and accept the host-key fingerprint manually. Then move over the Private Key and test ssh'ing into KVM Host. It shouldn't ask you for your password and just auto-login.
chmod 400 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Default Username is "AdminYouLoginName" and in windows, you can copy the file manually to the default location via
cat << 'EOF' > ~/.startxwinrc export DISPLAY=:0.0 virt-manager sleep inf EOF chmod +x ~/.startxwinrc
Create Shortcut on Desktop: (This is the contents of my .cmd)
tskill.exe xwin C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin
