Windows front end & remote kernel

I've just installed Mathematica 2.2.3 for Windows, which I got through the
UW site license.  I installed it and got it to work fine with the local
kernel, but now I'm trying to use a remote kernel on my departmental machine, 
with Trumpet Winsock.  The first time I tried it, I already had an IP 
connection established (through a EWAN telnet window).  
Mathematica dutifully connected to the remote machine, and gave me the
message indicating it had established a link with the remote kernel, but
the kernel never responded to my Mathematica commands.

Now I'm just trying to get it to run locally again, and I'm having very
strange problems.  I've got the default connection set to LOCAL, but
whenever I try to start up the kernel it unnacountably starts up Winsock
and tries to establish a connection with my remote computer.  What's worse,
whenever I click on the "protocols" button or the "edit" button in the
kernels dialog box, it freezes the entire Mathematica window (if I try to
click anywhere, I just get a "ding"), and Trumpet Winsock starts up
automatically.  What the heck is going on?
