do you mean you can issue: llogin remlinux ?
So it should work
Have you configured the .clogin file with something like:

add method remlinux ssh
add user remlinux root
add password remlinux password password
add autoenable remlinux 1
add backupfile remlinux /home/psuomi/data.cvs

(and obviously.... data.cvs must be a FILE not a directory, if you want to 
expand functionality, you should do)
