In the Remote Login: box, do you have


You need the ^% which waits for a % character (instead of the default > 
character) before Mathematica will send off the correct (math -remote) 
command to the SGI.  Also, you need to make sure that Mathematica is on 
your (Unix) path.  You can test this out by running a telnet session to 
the SGI and typing math at the % prompt.  

I've got caught out with this one before ...
