Since there is no real easy way to do this and since virt-manager is not for OSX – Here is the best thing we can do.

Since I have virt-manager installed on my linux machine at work – and I can connect to that machine from home. Here is what I can do. Open a terminal on my mac and ssh into my machine –

ssh -l USERNAME -X myserver

This will then allow you to type in virt-manager  and it will open up on your screen though X11 – XQuartz
