Remote kernels in Mathematica

        I'd like to run a remote kernel in Mathematica, with the front end on
a Macintosh. I do the necessary stuff in the 'Edit Connections' menu and add
the hostnames (actually I put in the IP numbers) of the hosts on which I
want to run the kernel. Now when I try to actually open a connection,
Mathematica complains that it cannot find the 'Hosts' file and leaves MacTCP
all confused.

        I tried to explore and could not find any documentation about this
file and/or its syntax etc..
        Anybody out there have success in running a remote kernel in
Mathematica on the Macintosh? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance
