I was wondering if it was possible to connect to an Amazon ec2 instance via VNC, but instead of installing a VNC server in the target machine, somehow connect it to the hypervisor's graphics output and mouse/keyboard input. This would be handy for a few reasons:
- I could see what's happening to my virtual machines before the VNC (or RDP for windows instances) service started. For example, if a machine isn't booting, I can see what the boot messages are.
- I can run OSes like Android without having to somehow modify them to use a VNC server.
