The problem that both of you are encountering is due to an incompatibility between Windows 95 and the so-called Local protocol that is used to provide front end/kernel communication on the same machine. Unlike users of Windows NT, who _must_ use TCP for MathLink connections, Windows 95 users have the opportunity to download a fixed protocol file free of charge from Wolfram's MathSource sites.
