Remote Kernel does nothing

I have set up a remote Kernel on a Unix machine, the front end is on a windows
machine using the following options in the Kernel configurations menu:

plink lhotka@remoteip /usr/local/bin/math -mathlink -LinkMode Connect
-LinkProtocol TCPIP -LinkName "`linkname`" -LinkHost `hostip`

I have tried various different commandline options (from The FAQ, PCT, Network
Programming with Mathematica, etc...)

This version starts a kernel on the remote machine (without a password prompt)
- I see it starting up on the remote machine using top -u lhotka, but it does

The situation is as follows: I In the frontend (on the host) I enter some
input, the frontend starts a Kernel on the remote machine, nothing comes back.
Any time I enter some input another Kernel is started, but nothing returns.

Can somebody please explain me - as detailed as possible - what I should do, I
have no idea to find out. For sure there is no easy way to establish a
conection between a Frontend and a Kernel over the network, promised by
Wolfram Research.

Thanks in advance,
