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. For this as well as answers to other
frequently asked questions about running Mathematica under Windows 95,
visit the following URLs

Hope this helps!
