Hey R Users

I am trying to to  implement a linux snow sockets parallelism in R, I am
pretty new to parallel computing

Here is the problem I am facing

Whenever I am doing

newSOCKnode("localhost") Its working fine

But whenever I do newSOCKnode("ip to another computer on the network ")
It throws up the following error
Fatal error: cannot open file
'/home/t136/R/i486-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.9/snow/RSOCKnode.R': No such file
or directory
R is stuck I have to force quit it with CTRL C . Now t136 is the machine I
am working on and manually I have checked that there exists a file
RSOCKnode.R on the specified directory

SSH is working fine as I have checked   system("ssh -l me  'ip to another
computer on the network' ls")
Works fine and I am getting the list of files on the other computer on my

Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
