In Response To 'Re: Remote kernel with non-standard SSH port'
The client is running OS X 10.8 and the server is running Scientific Linux 6.3. I was able to get the initial connection over SSH to work by specifying the port number like HOST:5423. Then I am prompted to enter my password. Once I enter it, I run into another problem that I believe has to do with the two additional ports that are opened to allow communication between the front end and remote kernel. The Linux firewall and University firewalls are blocking that communication. I had thought I could get around it using port forwarding but, if these two ports can't be set manually, I guess it isn't going to work. It was worth a try. Thanks for the help!
