I am having trouble using a remote kernel on a linux machine from my Windows XP frontend. I have two Linux machines on which I can run a remote kernel. One runs "Mathematica 6.0 for Linux x86 (64-bit)", one runs "Mathematica 6.0 for Linux x86 (32-bit)". I have no trouble getting the remote kernel to run on the 32-bit machine, but I am having trouble getting the remote kernel to run on the 64-bit machine. Windows XP firewall has been disabled, so I don't think it's a problem with ports being blocked. The settings that I have created for both are identical, save the machine name. But, when I connect to the 64-bit machine, the frontend crashes (stops responding) and I have to kill the frontend process on my Windows XP machine. MLOpen arguments: -LinkMode Listen -LinkProtocol TCPIP -LinkOptions MLDontInteract Shell command: plink.exe user@remotemachine -i <my putty key file> "/shared/local/bin/math -mathlink -LinkMode Connect -LinkProtocol TCPIP -LinkName `linkname` -LinkHost `ipaddress`" Both "Translate return into newline" and "Raw Mathlink connection" are unchecked. However, if I choose "Raw MathLink Connection" for the 64-bit machine, I am able to run computations on that machine remotely. The problem is, of course, that you can't do anything that involves graphics. Does anyone have any hints on how to troubleshoot remote kernel connections? I've read through most of the messages on this group related to remote kernels and haven't found anything that has worked yet. Thanks in advance.
