You're right, it's not the input sequence. I just tried it with your  
script and it worked.

I think the program wouldn't compile if that were the case, and your  
error message would be about not finding RemoteBlast.pm rather than  
the one you got.

This result really suggests that perl and Bioperl are not the issue.  
I'm not saying the following to give you the brushoff, but given the  
numerous ways in which web-based apps can fail and in which  
webservers can be installed, it might be best for you to find someone  
at your institution who can sit down with you and work through it.
