[PlanetCCRMA] running OSS/Alsa apps remotely

   I want to run a music player (Aqualung) on a remote FC2/Planet
machine so that the person at the far end hears the music I program.
When I try to do this I seem to run into permissions problems:

[mark@Christmas mark]$ uname -r
[mark@Christmas mark]$

[mark@Christmas mark]$ aqualung -o oss
oss_init: open of /dev/dsp failed: Permission denied
[mark@Christmas mark]$

If I'm sitting at that machine this works. I get the same sort of
errors using Alsa instead of OSS emulation.

I do not get permissions problems if I su - to root.

   Is there a way to make this work?
