Hey Marcela,

You didn't mention which Linux distro you're using?  That'll help us know which config files you'd have
and so forth. :)

Some thoughts:

 + Guessing you have root access on the "santacruz" box, so try this first with ssh just to see if it works:

     $ virsh -c qemu+ssh://root santacruz/system list

  + If that works, and you're ok with using ssh, then you can set up your "radic" user for access to libvirt:

       (the libvirt.org server seems to be offline atm :( )

     When that's set up, you should then be able to connect with:

       $ virsh -c qemu+ssh://radic santacruz/system list

  + If you really want to enable the tcp connection type, rather than ssh, then you might want to turn off
    all authentication for it.  On a RHELRHEL/Fedora/CentOS type of system this is done by setting:

      auth_tcp = "none"

    In your /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf file, then restarting the libvirt daemon.  Still, that will only help once
    you get the tcp connection listening anyway. :)

Um, that's the best I can think of for the moment.  Hopefully it helps? :)

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
