I've added a simple tool called "vncproxy" which helps connect to remote 
xenserver VM consoles via a local xvncviewer. The tool takes care of the 
tunneling for you. It's installed like this:

$ opam init
$ opam remote add xapi git://github.com/xapi-project/opam-repo-dev
$ opam install vncproxy

And then run like this:

$ vncproxy connect ubuntu --uri https://xenserver/ --password password

The source is here:


It's especially useful when using the upstream qemu configured to expose 
consoles over Unix domain sockets -- it's a nuisance to manually tunnel to 
those (IMHO)
