Haven't looked at this in forever, so I had to check the source myself.  It
uses a UNIX socket, i.e. local, so no you can't point vileget at a different
host.  I suppose you could come up with an ssh command to launch vileget on
the remote host.

You could hack to use inet sockets instead, but of course that
would raise *security* issues which at the time I preferred not to address.
