by default the admin console is at "127.0.0.1:9990" (localhost). Which means that it wont be accessible from outside of that machine. You can control where to bind it by setting /bin/standalone.sh -bmanagement=192.168.0.10 (but note the security implications).
Either way the blank screen seems odd, make sure you can make connections to that machine on that port (ie. firewall). [You could also try to ssh -X with forwarding X and run browser from the server machine.]
Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it
I just can't seem to make it work Im afraid, not 100% sure I understand what you mean
I use this command sh standalone.sh -b 0.0.0.0 to get it going because it's a remote server. It's a VPS hosted by Webfusion not a local machine i.e. I'm not trying to access my local machine remotely, I'm trying to access a remote JBoss installation on a VPS from my local machine
What does the -bmanagement=192.168.0.10 do? When I tried to use that it failed to load, I guess because of the IP Address
The documentation around hosting JBoss on something other than a local machine is really hard to understand as a newbie. I was hoping it would be just a simple configuration setting in the standalone/configuration/standalone.xml file but I cant find anything telling me how to do it
I've also tried this as a startup command
sh standalone.sh -b 0.0.0.0 -bmanagement 0.0.0.0
Still no joy
since AS7 the administration of the server is separated from 'normal' application.
-b <220.127.116.11> bind the 'application server' against an interface, so you can access your application with http://18.104.22.168:8080 also all other application relevant connections i.e. JNDI.
-bmanagement <22.214.171.124> bind the 'management server' against an interface (127.0.0.1 is the default)
now you can access the JBoss management console via http://126.96.36.199:9990, alos the native interface for CLI and domain mode is bound against this interface!
If you use the command from your last post you should use 'http://<your IP address>:9990' to see the management console.
Sadly I jsut tried that and I stil get a blank page So I guess I must have some other problem going on
This is what I used
sh standalone.sh -b 0.0.0.0 -bmanagement ?.?.?.?
where ?.?.?.? is the IP address of my Linux VPS server
Do you see something like this if you start the server (I start bin\standalone.bat -bmanagement 188.8.131.52) :
INFO [org.jboss.as.remoting] (MSC service thread 1-1) JBAS017100: Listening on /127.0.0.1:4447
INFO [org.jboss.as.remoting] (MSC service thread 1-5) JBAS017100: Listening on /184.108.40.206:9999
If yes it should work with http://220.127.116.11:9990
Do you start a fresh unzipped server?
Yes, I get this
14:41:51,546 INFO [org.jboss.as.remoting] (MSC service thread 1-8) JBAS017100: Listening on /0.0.0.0:4447
14:41:51,546 INFO [org.jboss.as.remoting] (MSC service thread 1-17) JBAS017100: Listening on /?.?.?.?:9999
I did go from a fresh install last night (2nd attempt).
Blank-blank or GWT "Loading..." blank?

Well that it at least *something*. Can you try another browser?
Hmm, looks that the server provide the page.
I'm wondering if it's some port setting on my VPS? but I have no clue how to fix that or even where to start. I tried JBoss 5.1 as a test on my VPS and all was fine
Sorted finally. Thanks for all the pointers.
I'm using VirusBarrier X6 and had WebThreats turned on. As soon as I turned it off all was fine, sorry to bother everyone but it was user error :(
Thanks again for the feedback it helped put me on me right track to time root cause
