Am I wrong if I assume you confused the A/B hard-connected limit of two
interfaces with the possibility to create nmdmN[AB] number of nmdm(4)
Simply use nmdm1A/B, nmdm2A/B etc.
Not sure if I got the question rigth, answers from others don't go into
that direction...

I haven't had VNC problems besides keymapping. It's done twice and I
haven't found a way or a client to disable keymapping locally on a
session basis.
Have you used the "wait" option for fbuf? Did the vm start to run after
VNC connection attempt?
