Re^3: How to use adjoining/remote computer's resources to share my program load?

Dear Siddheshwar.

I am not Alex, but i would suggest you to check this link

Take into account all what Alex told you and dig information of interest. Try to understand how to run programs in parallel in general. You will get clear understanding what you need to do and how you should act.
