You can do it the other way too, by setting DISPLAY=:0.0 and running nvidia-settings -c localhost:10 (or whatever your SSH forwarded display is) on your local machine. It's a little quicker because the part you're interacting with is running locally and only the NV-CONTROL queries are going over the remote connection.
