SSH works over TCP. Yes, virt-manager and various display technologies
associated with KVM and libvert work very well over SSH. It's a bit
awkward to manage in terms of security: you either need to log in as
yourself, with an X server tunning locally and and forwarded over SSH
and with root login on the remote host, or you need to active
privileges in libvirt to support members of a libvirt "group"  to
access and make the connections as yourself.

Unfortunately, from my tests, sudo and virt-manager do not work well together.
