Hi Nilaksha,

You are correct, the BLAST+ wrappers for Galaxy don't currently
support the -remote option to connect to the NCBI over the
internet to run the searches there - we've talked about this
though, and I've filed an issue to track this in future:

What do you mean by you need remote search for automation?
You can download all the NCBI managed databases like NT/NR
locally, so most tasks can be done without the -remote option.


P.S. The BLAST+ wrappers aren't 'newly developed', work
started way back in 2011 ;)
