What happens when you try?

If virt-viewer does open up but fails to connect, check (e.g. with netstat)
where it tries to connect to. Check that you have network access there (no
filtering/routing/NAT/etc issues), that qemu on the host is listening on the
port it tries etc.

If it does not open, try to tell your browser (if it does not already) to
not open it automatically, but ask you what to do. Then save the file you
get and check it.
