To whom it may concern:

I have Mathematica running on one NeXTstation and want to run it on another  
one on the same network. I have mounted the appropriate file system on the  
secondary machine and can actually bring up Mathematica there.  However, it  
will not run there.

So, I decided to follow the instructions for running it with the aid of a  
remote kernel.  On the secondary platform, I brought up the Kernel and Tasks  
dialog window, defined a new kernel name, chose "Remote Machine" option and  
identified the Remote Host to run the kernel on.  After launching the new  
kernel I was still unable to run Mathematica on the secondary machine.

Obviously, I have misunderstood your instructions.  On the other hand, after  
trying to decipher what is meant by a series of steps aimed at connecting a  
Mac to a Unix host, it occured to me that I might have been extrapolating  

On the other hand, there is not much that needs to be done to define the  
setup.  I am wondering whether or not during the installation process I might  
have had an option to support remote execution and decided not to take it.

Please give me clear steps to accomplish what should be a rather trivial  
task.  In doing so, please identify the primary machine which has Mathematica  
installed in it and the secondary machine which simply shares the network with  
the former.  Where are the settings being made - on the primary, secondary,  
or both.  And what are these settings, precisely; what do they mean?  Finally,  
if it is a matter of reinstalling Mathematica, in case there is an option for  
remote execution that I ignored, please advise me accordingly.

Please respond at your earliest convenience.
Thank you in advance for your help,
Sam M. Daniel
