[R] question about using a remote system

Do you need an interactive session at the remote machine, or are you
simply wanting to run a pre-written script?

If the latter, then you can ask ssh to execute a remote command, which
conceivably could be "R CMD xxxxx"

If you explain exactly why and what you are trying to do, then perhaps
there's a better solution....
