I would like to run a program on a unix machine from Mathematica3.0 that runs on my Mac, using MathLink communication. The Mathematica book tells me that it is possible (page 663): I have to start the unix program first (say, addtwo -linkcreate) which returns the link (say, 3709@wilson), and then go to the Mac and use Install[LinkConnect["email@example.com"]] hoping that Mathematica will connects to the wilson computer (unix). This however, does not happen. At this point the kernel on my Mac makes an AppleTalk windows and asks me to find the program for connection in the AppleTalk zones. That is not what I want. My question is: how can tell Mathematica to use TCP/IP for this connection? Presumably, I will also have to tell my login name and password for telnet. Unfortunately, although the Mathematica book claims that MathLink can work over TCP/IP, I did not find and example how to do that. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Gennady.
