Description

I'm not sure if its possible to specify a password for a bhyve VNC connection in the current version, but if it is then it would be good to expose this capability through the GUI.

This email mentions a patch to bhyve to add password-auth support:
https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-virtualization/2016-August/004613.html

And there are issues with some VNC clients where they can't connect to null-auth servers.

Ideally you would be able to specify at least an optional password, or user/password for the bhyve VNC port for a given VM.

Tested with 11-RC

Hi,

It was done upstream already, but I missed the merge window to FreeBSD 11-Stable, perhaps I still can get it in.
