While managing remote servers, there are operations like, "Open VM File" etc that would require selecting a file on a remote server. For GNOME users, ConVirt uses gnome-vfs to browse files on the remote server. As this is done on a separate channel it would require user to enter the password again for the managed server. When prompted for saving the password, it is recommended not to save password in key-ring for security reasons.
Note The user is NOT prompted for password if the key based authentication is used. The user experience is quite seamless between localhost vs remote managed server management.
if you do not have gnome-vfs or it is not working, please add the following to the convirt.conf file's CLIENT_CONFIGURATION section. This will enable the file browser implemented within ConVirt.
