[pulseaudio-discuss] play music stream on headless server

I'm trying to play music on a headless server, on which firefox will be 
playing a streaming channel.

If I'm on the headless server all works well.

But when I ssh into the server as the same user, nothing works. If I 
start pulseaudio:

pulseaudio -D

pa finds no sinks:

pacmd list-sinks
1 sink(s) available.
   * index: 0
	name: <auto_null>
	driver: <module-null-sink.c>
		device.description = "Dummy Output"
		device.class = "abstract"
		device.icon_name = "audio-card"

This should be common use case. How do I set it up ?
