[fedora-virt] virt-manager and ssh with non root user



Hello,
using F11 + rawvirt repo.
I would like to connect from my virt-manager from this F11 to a RH EL 5.4 xen Hypervisor. Is it possible?
On the RH EL host, root access via ssh is prevented and I don't want to use a CA certficate at the moment.
Also I cannot export DISPLAY env so I cannot directly ssh to the host and run its virt-manager program....

I tried to edit /etc/libvirtd/libvirtd.conf on rh el 5.4 host adding
unix_sock_group = "mygroup"

and then trying to connect with one user of this group. Is this setting correct as I intended it?

When in virt-manager of F11 I try to create new connection, it seems I'm only able to create a session of type

xen+ssh://root myrhel54host/

and not of type
xen+ssh://myuser myrhel54host

Any hints?
Also, as in virt-manager this connection fails to create (root prevented from ssh directly as said above), I would like to delete it... but I didn't find an option for this;
In virt-manager only "connect" and "details" options are available....

these are messages in virsh session when setting LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1
