kde multimedia apps network transparency

There seems to be a problem with the behaviour of kde multimedia apps (I've
tried with noatun and kaboodle) when run remotely over a network.
Running "artsdsp xmms" works as intended. The remote artsdsp connects to my
local artsd, the remote xmms loads the file and the sound streams to my local
However, it seems when I try this with for example noatun, it won't load the
file on the remote machine, instead it sends a command to my local arts
daemon to load the file locally and play. This will fail, unless there
happens to be a media file with the same path+name as on the remote machine.
This is over a telnet connection when I'm running kde+artsd locally as well,
I like the idea of being able to have thin clients with sound capability. I
run several computers over the xdmcp protocol, but I haven't been able to
connect the sound daemon yet. On these machines I don't want to (can't,
actually) run kde locally. Is there a recommended procedure for running artsd
on such thin clients?
