running a remote kernel under NT 4.0?

Hi all, can someone tell me if the following scenario is possible and/or
how to get it implemented:

We have a superfast 200 MHz double PentiumPro machine with 64 MB of memory
running under Windows NT 4.0. 

What we want to do, is to install  MMA 3.0 on this machine and access the
kernel from frontends on several other Windows 95 workstations. This works
perfectly if the remote kernel runs on a UNIX box, but does it work too
with the remote kernel running under Windows NT 4.0?

I tried to implement this scenario with the trial version of MMA 3.0, but
couldn't get it to work. Replacing the Windows NT machine with a NEXTSTEP
machine running the trial version worked instantly!

Any hints are welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Bernhard Hahn
