[ESS] ess-remote

I just began using ess in combination with SAS. The program works great 
locally. However, my interest is in running SAS on a remote server with local 
files. So, following the instructions on the ess website I got ssh.el 
running. I started SAS as indicated. I fired up ess-remote. So all perfectly 

The problem, I send sections (C-c C-r) or anything else of my local sas 
program to the remote process and I get the following message:

Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

I have read on internet that the problem occurs with other programs but I 
preferred to look for help hear before I screw anything (since everything 
seems to be working). Probably it is just a dumb thing what is going on.

The second problem I see is that submitting with C-c i, when I get to the 
INFILE line and then I run the statements before RUN, the evaluation says 
that it has 3 variables (correct) but zero observations (my data file is 
local as it is my sas file...I an trying to send them to the remote server). 
However, if I scp everything to the server, they run like a charm.

Thanks  in advance to anyone able and willing to help me!!
