I am trying to add libvirt to a linux machine running a custom built linux-
there is no packet manager, everything is compiled using buildroot.

On this VM server, I am running libvirt-1.2.2 and the linux kernel is

Libvirtd starts and runs in the background. I can add/edit VMs using
If I try to connect to the local qemu, everything works: virsh -c
If I ssh in from the remote machine, as root,  and run virsh, everything
seems to work

But if I try to connect using virt-manager, or *virsh -c
qemu+ssh://root@<server_ip>/system* I get an error:

error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: Cannot recv data: ssh: connect to host port 22:
Connection refused: Connection reset by peer

Any ideas?
