I know, but this all is used from "ovirt portal", and we are only using 
ovirt api, the portal is provided by own broker :)

I'm currently looking at the code of vdsClient, to see if i can 
replicate the "desktopLogin" feature.

This was why i was wondering if this is the place to post this, because 
it's more related to "development", but not to de development of ovirt 
itself (or yes, don't know right now... :) )

Thank you

Adolfo Gómez
