[PVE-User] How to see IP address of guest VM

I've actually thought about this as well.  I think I get what he's asking
for.  IIRC, in VMware vSphere you can see the VMs that are assigned to the
guest machines and it is kind of nice to be able to see it there without
having to open up the guest and go look.  It would be very useful if there
was some way that the web interface could gather that information on its
own and display it.  I understand it might be difficult to do but I have
often thought it would be nice if that information was there.

Just my two cents,

Brian Hart
