gnuclient can do this I think, with the -h parameter, to specific the
hostname. But you have to be careful because gnuclient allows
execution of arbitrary lisp on the server emacs, which means arbitrary
processes on the server machine. 

The easiest way to get this to work is just to stick "ssh kog31" in
front of the gnuclient call....

At least if I understand what you are asking correctly.
