I am running from MacIICi to a DECstation 3100 using the frontend on the MAC
and the remote kernel on the DECstation.  I had the same difficulty, but
solved it by deselecting the Host File box (take out the check).  I think you
must need a local file and Mathematica can not find it.  Let me hear from
you if this works or if there are other problems.  Like many users I don't
have time to read every word in the documentation.
