Can a Sun and a Mac "talk" fast enough to be able to run >the kernel and front end on the two separate machines? It would seem that >it would be nice to be able to run a separate kernel on each machine. Is >that possible? I have been running Mathematica2.2 on a PB180c for quite a while. Most of the time I am running both the front end and the kernel on the mac. When I need more speed I run one or more remote kernel(s) on a some unix boxe(s): Sun's or HP's. It works very well, even multiple remote kernels from home (using a SLIP connection and the Express Modem). Note:without SLIP I have not been able to use a single 2.2 remote kernel from home; before that (without SLIP) I had no trouble running a 2.1 remote kernel.
