yes. works fine - as soon as i know the ip address.
and i too use ssh to connect to remote systems.

i agree. but:
i want to play with different distributions, most use dynamic ip.
as i want to set up a headless i7 with a fat harddisk in the cellar, vnc
would make life much easier!
with ssh i have 2 points:
1) i have to know the qemu-image ip
2) the ssh-server must be started which is not default with quite a lot
with vnc i just have to connect to the server-ip with the 590x port,
where the x is known by qemu '-vnc :x'. with ssh i have to look at what
ip my dhcp-server assigns to the qemu-session. not realy a problem, i
can ssh to it...
vnc just needs 2 more packages: gtk-vnc + vinagre
thus disk-overhead is minimal, protocol-overhead i can ignore as i have
1gb network inhouse.
