thanks very much for your answer.
Of course, before posting the previous message, I had read the whole
J/Link User Guide, but without finding any hints.
I don't know if you (at Wolfram) have access to an internal-only and
updated documentation, but my Mathematica 5 documentation - in the
"2.5  Creating Links with MathLinkFactory" section you mentioned -
doesn't have ANY reference to the word "rsh" or "remote kernel".
The only line that "could" be useful (but it isn't) is the following:
// Typical "listen" link on any platform:
KernelLink ml = MathLinkFactory.createKernelLink("-linkmode listen
-linkname 1234 -linkprotocol tcp");
There's NO further explanation for that line, and I feel dumb, because
it doesn't say anything useful to me.
I mean, first of all, if that is a "listen" command I assume it should
be executed on the remote host, but then how do I connect to that
"listening kernel", I mean, which is the correct syntax I have to use
in my J/Link client? I promise you there's no mention of that in the
I think the Mathematica documentation is really well written and
exhaustive, but in that particular chapter I have the feeling that it
lacks some crucial information

Ok, I'll go look into the MathLink docs and try to get more info on
the createKernelLink API
