CCL:G: .chk from log

 Sent to CCL by: "quantum  chem" [qchem66 *]
 Dear members,
                I would greatly appreciate if someone helps me out in knowing
 the following 2 things in a gaussian calculation:
 1.How to retrieve .chk file from a log file in a gaussian calculation if .chk
 keyword was not given in the input?
 2.Suppose i have run a gaussian calculation on a remote machine and the.chk
 file has been generated there..then how to open/read the .chk file on  a
 different system other than the remote one.
 Thanks in advance  and excuse me for such a naive question.
