Hi Daniel,

I was using the development branch of osrm-backend and the standard (eg 
npm install osrm) version of node-osrm. Since I couldn't figure out how 
to get the correct version of node-osrm installed on the remote machine 
I redid the entire process with the master branch.

It works now, thanks for the help,
