SSS and lights

I'm trying to set up SSS on a object with an internal light so that it glows from the core of the object.

I've added the misss_fast_shader_x passes to my object. I've also added a point light. When the light is behind the object the SSS works fine...however when I put the light side the object everything gets black.

Any ideas on what I should do?

does the SSS object cast shadows? it probably shouldn't.

also, you could try placing a "bulb" inside the SSS object and assigning a bright self-illuminated shader to it. just make sure the bulb's shading group is using the same lightmap as your SSS shader.
