SSH x11 forward nvidia-settings

I have been trying to access nvidia-settings of a remote computer from mine through ssh.

On the server I set
X11Forwarding Yes
and then from the client ssh -X remote_machine.
But when running nvidia-settings command the window pops out and shows my own nvidia settings.

I tried to pass different $DISPLAY variables. But none of them works.
I also tried what I read on this forum.

Any ideas ?



nvidiasettings, ssh, x11 forwarding
