When using the ProxyServer, or just when connecting to/from a virtual machine in general, it would be very nice to support VSOCK.
One could also envisage running virtual machines without any networking whatsoever (or even the host, and let the VM have the NIC instead), only the VSOCK would be used for display forwarding.
qemu ... -device vhost-vsock-pci,id=vhost-vsock-pci0
.svm_family = AF_VSOCK, .svm_cid = VMADDR_CID_HOST, .svm_port = 1234,
Not sure about the kernel + python support.
/usr/include/bits/socket.h:#define PF_VSOCK 40 /* vSockets. */ /usr/include/bits/socket.h:#define AF_VSOCK PF_VSOCK
This may require cythonizing:
>>> s=socket.socket(40) >>> s.bind((1234, )) Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/socket.py", line 228, in meth return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args) socket.error: getsockaddrarg: bad family >>>
