OK, I have some improvements here:
- I can connect to the controller, but I have first to copy the furl:
$HOME on the headnode is not available on the computenode
- with ipcontroller-engine.furl, it seems to be working.

So the only issue is that I need to copy this furl file to the node,
as they can't access the file. I may have had some furl files left
inside that folder, which lead to the issue at hand. This should be
done with --engine-furl-file=... I suppose? Is there a way of exposing
it inside ipcluster, with kernel_config perhaps?
