BigDCD and scripts works well, some problems sometimes...

but the point is:

I'm interested in use extensions from Extension > Analysis, in graphic
mode, remotely accessing interactively a node in the computer where
the trajectory is stored.

I'm using compressed X11 forwarding to have the graphic VMD working
remotely, but the memory available per node cannot store the entire
trajectory and the VMD crashes when it run out of memory.

That's the reason.
