27http://www.spice-space.org[SPICE] (the Simple Protocol for Independent
28Computing Environments) is an open remote computing solution,
29providing client access to remote displays and devices (e.g. keyboard,
30mouse, audio). The main use case is to get remote access to virtual
31machines and container.
32
33This daemon listens on TCP port 3128, and implements an HTTP proxy to
34forward 'CONNECT' request from the SPICE client to the correct {pve}
35VM. It runs as user 'www-data' and has very limited permissions.
