Thread-topic: [Xen-API] Accessing XCP console


I'm just starting with the Xen Cloud project (XCP), and I like what I'm see'ing. However, I have a couple of questions


- Trying to access a VM's console is problematic, for example doing

xe console-list vm-uuid=26fe6e30-87b7-b539-5002-9ecc26aca747



Now, that URL for the console results in a 404 when visited in a browser. I'm not so sure how to access it. Ideally, I'd like a front end web server to serve consoles (vnc java client) to multiple backend XCP nodes. But it's unclear to me how to achieve this ? Hopefully some authentication layer will be available.


- I am using the python API bindings. Where do I find the most up2date API documentation please ?


I have posted all the documents on the API at the following address in the Wiki - http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XAPI_Developer_Guide. Hopefully you can find the answer there. Thanks.
