Re: [virt-tools-list] Fwd: virt-manager over SSH and firewall

Let's keep this on the mailing list, because the archives of the list
may help others having the same problem in future.

Presumably the less typing.  I don't remember the exact details, but I
think it's the way that is recommended in the ssh manual page.

Instead of using virt-manager, on the same machine that you would
run virt-manager, run virsh instead.  eg:

  sudo virsh -c qemu+ssh://M1/system list --all

The point about using virsh is that it's much closer to the metal, and
you'll get to see any error messages or warnings that ssh throws up.
