Your symptom sounds like the octave search path isn't set. You can check
this by asking your octaveserver to execute the "path" command and see if
the result points to the directories where things like polyfit.m are kept.

If this is the problem, I'm not sure exactly how you should solve it. If you
weren't on Windows, I'd say set the environment variable OCTAVE_PATH to the
appropriate path. Perhaps Windows has some corresponding thing.
