Configuring a remote kernel with the Kernel Configuration Basic Options I manage to have a new kernel in the list of the kernel that I can open. However when I start the new kernel I get asked for the password and then nothing happens ...

The kernel MYKERNEL failed to connect to the front end. (Error = MLECONNECT). > You should try running the kernel connection outside the front end.

My connection works both via ssh and via java ... "java -jar /Applications/ user@host path/MathKernel"

Any suggestions or a less basic command that gives more info on the reasons of the failure of this connection?

Thanks, Roberto
