    configuring the Jboss AS using RemoteHostValve

    jerish sunny Newbie

      i have application hosted on jboss AS 3.2.1.

      The host machine has multpile aliases in DNS like hostname1.au.company, hostname1,Aliases1.au.company,Aliases1 .

      I want to restrict the people from accessing the application using hostname1.au.company, hostname1.

      for this i have made this modification in jboss-service.xml in /opt/jboss/server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat.sar/META-INF


      <Engine name="MainEngine" defaultHost="localhost">

                     <Logger className = "org.jboss.web.catalina.Log4jLogger"

                        verbosityLevel = "debug" category = "org.jboss.web.localhost.Engine"/>

                     <Host name="localhost">


                        <!-- Access logger -->

                        <Valve className = "org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"

                           prefix = "localhost_access" suffix = ".log"

                           pattern = "common" directory = "${jboss.server.home.dir}/log" />

                        <!-- Default context parameters -->

                        <DefaultContext cookies = "true" crossContext = "true" override = "false" />

                        <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteHostValve" deny="hostname1*" />

                        <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteHostValve" allow="Aliases1*" />





      now the application shows forbidden page when in use hostname1.au.company, hostname1,Aliases1.au.company,Aliases1  address.

      is there something i am missing here.

      thanks in advance.
