I am using virt-manager on debian 8 and I am remotely connecting to a libvirt instance on a server.
It was all working fine until today when I discovered that I cannot remotely connect to the libvirt server anymore.

It says it is running however I cant connect to it either remotely or on the server using virt-manager.
When I do a virsh --list It just hangs and doesn't output anything.
Any ideas?
