Yes I know that when I just type a program name without mentioning a

which possibly could have it's own configuration options, so I try
everything in first instance locally before I even think of trying it

Gotcha. I just looked back at your "X Terminal" post, and now I understand
what you are trying to do. First, you try out the process on your local
machine, then (once you have the bugs worked out) you try it against your
remote server.

No problems.

Glad to be of help.
