    making a rmi call over ipv6 using jboss

    gaurav abbi Newbie

      hi,
      i have a rmi service running which is binded with these environment variables
      java.naming.provider.url=blriedlin03:19014, java.naming.factory.initial=org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory, java.naming.factory.url.pkgs=org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces

      when i try to invoke the same using a RMI client and using "jbossall-client.jar", it works fine.

      but when i replace the url with the one using ipv6 address, it fails.
      with a timeout

      java.naming.factory.initial=org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory java.naming.provider.url=jnp://[fe80::213:72ff:fe3c:21bf]:19014 java.naming.factory.url.pkgs=org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces
      java.net.preferIPv6Addresses=true
      java.net.preferIPv4Stack=false


      its a dual stack machine, with host name mapped to ipv4 address.

      My first question is does jboss supports IPV6?
      if yes, then what am i missing here which is causing me the failure?
