[virt-tools-list] Connect virt-viewer to VM on remote host?

I have a SPICE-enabled QEMU VM running on a host, with SPICE-enabled 
virt-viewer available on both the same host and a nearby machine on the 
LAN; when I try to connect thusly:

virt-viewer --connect qemu://host GuestName

it pops up "Unable to connect to libvirt with URI qemu://host".  Already 
verified that firewall is off on the host (it's Arch Linux).  Is there 
something else to do to permit connection like this?  I've also tried by 
VM number (there's only 1 right now) and UUID, same results.  I can 
reach the host by GUI through virt-manager very well, working very 
nicely with sound and everything.
