Perhaps the URL is the problem. If the IP is and
the port for the VM is 5900, then try

    remote-viewer spice://

If server is a dns that can be resolved, should be fine to use it
instead of ip address

    remote-viewer spice://server:5900

You can get more verbose information of issues with --spice-debug
command line option too.
