I want to access a kernel from another computer. However, I have no idea how to set up the remote kernel and how to access it. I have gone through a lot of articles on this website and others, but they confuse me more than solve my problem.

Both computers run Mathematica 12.0 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS system.

Please help me out.

    $\begingroup$ I would not recommend to set remote kernel at all. The best way to use Mathematica on remote computer is to use vncserver/vnc client approach. The idea is to run (on server side) vncserver (for example tigervnc.org) on client machine (your ubuntu) then run either tigervnc client (or tight vnc client, tightvnc.com, which is compatible). Of course you have tunnel the connection over ssh for safety. This is most reliable way I use many many years. If you don't need graphical interface, then a much simple alternative would be ssh to remote server and screen to run math kernel $\endgroup$
