Hi all,

I did my homework: read back issues of this news group, read the WRI 
info on their web site, and after all that I still can't connect to a 
remote kernel.

I have mma for students (Mac), got all the stuff I need etc. Set it all 
up according to the instructions, and I can get the terminal to connect, 
but after it logs in (correctly) the prompt comes up, and it just sits 

I'm logging onto a SGI Indy which runs a shell that gives the following 

"corey 1% "

In deed, the login prompts are different from the shell prompts. I get 
the standard login prompts:


My life will be suitable enhanced if I can do my sick calculations on 
this remote box because the sys admin is completely clueless about 
mma--didn't know what the "front end" was. So I can get the best of both 
worlds here.

Please don't tell me to read the book (I don't have it) or the online 
docs--I already have, and I just hang. Yes, mma hangs, after I manually 
logout of my unix account.

I will appreciate any help!
