All you need is a rexec/rsh programm for Windows. Try WinRsh with the 
following values in options/kernels 'kernel parameters'

"winrsh -l username -h hostname  -q "math -mathlink -LinkName $LinkName -LinkHost $LinkHost -LinkProtocol $LinkProtocol -LinkMode $Link Mode"

with 'hostname' and 'username' substituted and make link mode to 'Listen'
link protocol to 'TCP' that should work for you.
