[Bioperl-l] Remote Blast against RefSeq_mrna db (Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast)

Hello all,
I would like to run a remote blast search against the RefSeq_mrna 
database using the script below. Everything seems to work smoothly if I 
use nt or other databases, however if I search against the RefSeq_mrna 
db (typing refseq_rna when prompted) my output file cannot be opened. Is 
there a specific designation for the RefSeq_mrna db in 
Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast? The link 
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/staff/tao/URLAPI/remote_blastdblist.html is 
no longer available.

Any suggestions would be appreciated,
