comment How to access a KVM virtual-machine?
For your first question, you need an X display (e.g. ssh -X to your server) to run virt-manager. For the second question, yes, SSH uses the network and so you need an IP address.

But you should get NS records in an AUTHORITY section, not "connection timed out".

comment Run ssh login command without modifying remote .bashrc
Weird, it should definitely work -- I made a setup like yours here and tested it. What version of bash are you running? What's the output of set -o in your shell after logging in?

comment Run ssh login command without modifying remote .bashrc
If you have set -o vi in your profile files too (or they source .bashrc), you might need: ssh -t user@host bash --norc --noprofile -o emacs -i

comment Run ssh login command without modifying remote .bashrc
Because there's a command in .bashrc that overrides it? Add --norc, or --rcfile yourfile.rc instead.

comment How to stop a infinite running process (ztail) started by a ssh session after that session is closed
"If the ssh session terminates, the kernel kills all child processes as well." Not exactly. The kernel sends a SIGHUP to the process group when the controlling terminal disappears, or the session leader dies creating an orphaned process group. It is likely ztail is either affecting sessions/process groups with setpgid or setsid, or ignoring SIGHUP. See chapter 9 in APUE for all the gory details.
