So, with qemu (i'm using it) it should be possible to have a
persistent connection?
Because in my case, novnc connected to qemu is still not persistent,
regardless the vns server

/usr/bin/kvm -id 104  [...] /var/run/qemu-server/104.vnc,x509,password

so, it should be a vnc server listening to /var/run/qemu-server/104.vnc

True, but this require additional cabling and hardware configurations.

There are all workarounds, but as a VNC server is already running, why not using
it directly with persisting connections ?
