    remote JNDI using IP


      I am able to setup and run a program that writes to and reads from a JMS queue in JBoss EAP 6.0.0.GA. 

      I am able to run the program when i use the URL remote://localhost:4447 in the code. However when i try to run the program remotely or using my machine's IP in the above URL, i get an error saying the lookup service could not be performed.

      I think this should be some configuration to be done in the standalone-ful.xml that i am using the start my JBoss. Can somebody help pointing out what needs to be done ?

      I am binding my IP at start time using -b

          I started the server with -b <my-ip> and i am able to get the same code working now.

            Hi there,


            JBossAS/WildFly is configured this way by default for security reasons. It forces administrators to deliberately expose their server to the world, instead of doing it inadvertently.


            Instead of using the "-b" command line option, you can indeed configure this in your "standalone*.xml" file.


            Define an interface:


            {code:xml}        <interface name="external">

                        <inet-address value="your.ip.address"/>



            Define a socket-binding:


            {code:xml}<socket-binding name="ext-remoting" port="4447" interface="external" />{code}


            Change the remoting subsystem connector declaration:


            {code:xml}<connector name="remoting-connector" socket-binding="ext-remoting" security-realm="ApplicationRealm"/>{code}

              Hey Stephen, thanks for the pointers. However, after these changes, i am still facing an issue. The standalone java program that i am using to send/retrieve JMS messages is working when run locally on my machine (using my IP in the URL). However, when i run the same program from another machine, i get this exception. (I have used all the jar files as were needed on my local machine when running the program):

                If you run the client local the security 'ApplicationRealm' is bypassed.

                In case you run the client on a different machine you need to add a application user to the ApplicationRealm by using bin/add-user.sh (follow the instructions and select application user).

                In your InitialContext you need to set the user and the password.
