EJB calls across app. servers

If I attempt to lookup a remote (on a different application server) EJB within a servlet, I am able to successfully locate and create() the EJB. If I attempt to lookup a remote EJB from within an EJB, it fails***. If I attempt to lookup the same EJB remotely, but within the same application server, it succeeds.
The failure occurs with a specific installation of WebSphere - that is, it succeeds when I deploy the EJB on another machine altogether. This seems to indicate a problem with the particular remote WebSphere installation, or a network issue with that particular machine.

***The failure is in the call to create() the EJB:

Any suggestions regarding how to have this remote EJB call succeed from within an EJB container are most appreciated.
