[pulseaudio-discuss] "Permission denied" to remote shell?

I am running pulseaudio [0.9.21-63-gd3efa-dirty] in system mode. I just
discovered that an identical command to play audio with mplayer works when
logged into a local shell but fails when logged in remotely.
Basically, using gnome-terminal on the desktop:
luser at poppy:/music$ mplayer -ao pulse my-song.mp3
and that works.
But when logged in via ssh [as luser], the same command does not work: I
get the following in mplayer output:
AO: [pulse] Init failed: Connection refused
Failed to initialize audio driver 'pulse'
Is there a reason for this? or am I somehow misconfigured?
Thanks for any clarification,
