Use of remote kernels via Mac's

Dear mathgroup:

	I am using a MAC II with MMA 2.0 running on it. In addition, 
there is an MMA 2.1 version on our university RISC IBM/6000 workstations. 
I now want to use the kernel on the powerful RISC station via modem from
my MAC at home. Nearly everything works fine, but trying to plot, say,
a Sin[] function via the kernel, gives an error message on my MAC front end,
saying that it does not know what to do with the PostScript that is
coming in from the RISC station.

    	Looking at the raw PostScript, I can certainly understand this,
e.g. two corresponding pieces read as

MAC:                                    RISC:
------------------------------------------------------------------------

gsave                                   p
gsave	                                p
0.002 setlinewidth                      .002  w
0.02381 0.30902 moveto                  0.02381 0.30902 m
0.02381 0.31527 lineto                  0.02381 0.31527 L
stroke                                  s
grestore                                p

------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Does anyone know where this problem might come from? The only
thing I can think of are the different version numbers of MAC and RISC.
Any idea or comment on this problem is greatly appreciated,

    	-Rudo
