Oh thanks, i over read tcp_point and tcp_shoot, it is working for me.

The Reason why i try to use the ZSH is that im not allowed to change the
setup of the Machines or activate a Daemon or something.

But zsh is installed and full usable. And this cloud thing is not
practicable because this Machines haven't a Internet Connection.
