I have Mathematica 5 - a powerful CAS. I have a cheap netbook (running Windows XP), wich not only is too slow to run mathmatica on, I doubt it has the harddrive space.
I do however have remote access to a number of very powerful computers, (most of wich run variose Linuxes, but one of which is Windows Server 2008, though I'ld rather not use this one*). Mostly over SSH but other protocols can be arraged for some, I'm sure.
So I'ld like to install Mathematica onto one of these machine and then run it remotely.
Either from the command line via Putty or via some other method.
I glanced through the mathematical documentation and read something about using some MathLink program, which links the front end installed on my computer to a remote kernel.
Anyone have any experience with this?
I'm not sure if this belongs here or in SuperUser.
- At the moment, it's being tinkered with, and when the tinkering stops it'll likely be used to run multiple thin terms. As compared to the Linux machines: I have access to a dual 2.4 Xeon with 3GB RAM, which the rest of the world seems to have completely forgotten about (runs freeBSD!).
