Hello again.

Unfortunatelly we do not have that much materials in English. (But if you
can read Russian - welcome to http://www.ossportal.ru/technologies/rhev. :-)

If you want just to see SPICE in action it is not hard. You need qemu with
SPICE support on server and SPICE client on client.

You need to start qemu on server with additional options:
-spice port=<port>,disable-ticketing  - use this one if you do not need
password protection
-spice port=<port>,password=<secret> - if you need to protect connection

After it you can connect from client using
spicec -h <host> -p <port>

Additional options for compression, encryption, etc are described in qemu
man page.

Best regards,
