Are you aware that for this to work, you need X11 on both ends of your
connection? I.e. an active X server running on the machine on which you
run the above command, and X11 libraries, along with an X11-enabled
gnuplot on the machine you connect to (called "address" above)?

What was the terminal set to: "Unknown", by any chance? What do you get for
on both sides of the connection?

Probably not. But your use of 'ssh -X' might be wrong. Do _any_ other
X11 clients (like 'xclock') work from inside that ssh -X session?
