Hi All,
        I've proxmox installed on my machine with SME server on KVM as Guest
OS. When I am trying to access the VMs remotely using Virt-manger, I am
getting the below error message:

*010-07-21 11:48:19,463 (error:79): Uncaught Error: Unable to open a
connection to the libvirt management daemon.

Libvirt URI is: qemu+ssh://root@

Verify that:
 - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started

Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu+ssh://
root at':
server closed connection
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/* *virtManager/connection.py", line 872, in
    None], flags)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-**packages/libvirt.py", line 102, in
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('**virConnectOpenAuth() failed')
libvirtError: server closed connection
*Maybe you need to install ssh-askpass in order to authenticate.*

Even after installing the ssh-askpass both on the Proxmox server and on the
machine on which virt-manger is running, I am getting the same error. I have
also verified that libvirtd is running on both the machines.

Can some one help me in figuring out what's happening here.

Thank you,
Venu Madhav
