Here is the problem in more detail. I set up a remote kernel at port 8000 on another computer on an intranet. I want to get information in and out of this kernel from my laptop. It is easy to do with
I can then send requests to it using
LinkRead, but this is a pain. It would be a lot nicer if I could just connect a notebook frontend to it. It seems that it ought to be possible with Kernel Configuration, but I cannot seem to make it work. The Kernel configuration seems to always want to be trying to launch another kernel. I can get it to connect with
-LinkMode Connect -LinkProtocol TCPIP -LinkName "firstname.lastname@example.org"
but it hangs. Windows command netstat shows the connection made after this, but the laptop notebook hangs, when I quit the kernel from the laptop, it takes down the running kernel on the remote machine. I think I may just be missing something simple; there is no need for security.
