You are working on the remote machine and there is no way that you can
specify "out of the box" a save to client machine (I stand to be corrected). 

You could mount a directory on the client on the server, but I would
suggest to

1) save the object on the server (the where R is running on)
2) use scp from the client to copy the file from the server to the
client (the one you are typing on).

scp user at host1:file1 ./TheNameOfTheLocalFile
