When i add vnclisten='' (This is my machine ip ).
Then i cant able to start the domain. I am getting this error.

# xm create -c /etc/xen/dom-209
Using config file "/etc/xen/dom-209".
VNC= 1
Started domain Dom-El4
xenconsole: Could not read tty from store: No such file or directory

Could we make this more simple if we can do some configuration in host machine, no password no vnclisten at all.

  Right.  Thats your problem then.

  You could use ssh port-forwarding to forward the connection from the
remote host to the local machine, then connect to that securely as

  [remote machine]
    xm create ...

  [local machine]
    [setup forward to remote]
    ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 -N username@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    [start viewer]

  (This might be too much complexity; but it is preferable to having
VNC listening on a public-facing machine with no password/firewall/ACL
in the way ..)
