   of course, you can attach a local notebook to a remote kernel. This
is done e.g. via the "Kernel>Kernel Configuration Options" from the local
frontend. But depending on your details there are other methods as well.

In the "Kernal Properties" you then configure your connection. This, however,
can be somewhat tricky, and depends on your local conditions, like the
type of operating system you have on the remote machine, the connectivity software,
eg. SSH or RSH, various password settings and the like. I suggest you
need to talk to a local network expert to find out the details in order to set up
the "Remote shell command". Generically it is rather difficult to help here.

Much information you find in the FAQ on the Wolfram website as well as in
this newsgroup.
