I've just uploaded a patch for using the script on 
the ftp site: 

This permits BLAST analysis on the NCBI server. It's not an ideal
solution, but will do for now. Check out the README in this archive
for details.  

The remote BLASTing script cannot be configured to use an alternative
site, but this could be added without too much trouble.  If you need
to do this now, you can edit the server URL used in the
module, but any alternative site must be compatible with the NCBI web
