Yeah, I remembered that immediately after I posted.  That function always
seemed odd to me--why would I log into a remote machine and run local
commands?--so I often forget that it works that way.

And "I'm trying to use an ftp client as if it were a remote shell" is the
only interpretation of the OP's situation that made sense to me.  I didn't
