You're not making any sense. For the script on your local host to be
able to connect and communicate with the remote host, it would need to
know the name of the remote host. Hence, the local host already knows
the name and has no reason to ask the remote host for a name by which
to contact it.
That's what I get from your description of the problem. You probably
want to clarify some things.
