How to | Connect to a Remote Kernel

The Wolfram System can run its calculations on other computers that have the Wolfram System installed. Passing computations to other, potentially more powerful, machines can increase the efficiency of your work.

The Wolfram System can be thought of as two distinct parts, a kernel and a front end. The front end is what you see on your screen (graphics, text, and display of your computations), while the kernel takes care of almost everything else, including the vast majority of computations.

Using a remote kernel to perform your computations is very convenient if your computer has limited hardware resources or is being used for other tasks. The Wolfram System can automate the running of remote kernels.

Begin setting up the remote kernel by selecting Evaluation Kernel Configuration Options:

In the window that appears, click Add to create a new kernel profile. The Kernel Properties window now appears, which lets you configure your new kernel.
