It's good to show by an example:
Supppose I can run "clustalw INFILE" on server terminal, is there a tool 
allowing me to run this command locally, just like I have clustalw 
installed locally? In the back, this tool will upload my local INFILE onto 
server and run "clustalw INFILE" on the server, and then send back the 
output to my local computer. The uploaded data file will be deleted from 
server after use.

"Clustalw" here is just for example. Of course, I can install it on my 
local computer. But for those programs available only on server or those 
need strong server power, this tool (if exists) will give much convenience.
