Good Morning Deb-

It's unclear (to me at least) what you are trying to do.. What is the 
"server" running? Is it running RServe for which you have a userid and 
pwd or is it just a plain  "server" running some OS?

*IF* this is the case (RServe):
on the windows machine you will need to:

--and optionally--

I *think* RSeval/Rserve *may* be what you're looking for, but I am going 
off just an assumption by what you meant regarding "server"..

Rserve can be used as a client and server on both platforms (I 
personally have had more success running the server portion under linux, 
with linux and java clients in which the clients are a mixture of the 
package's java access *and* R client access to the rserver instance)
