    Cannot connect without vpn

    Udo Klink Newbie

      Hi all,

      I have an application on JBoss 6.1.0 that runs fine locally. When I try to connect from the Internet, I get an exception (Connection to host refused). When I activate my vpn to the Server, it works.

      Any ideas why I cannot connect to the application via the Internet?

      Thanks for answers.

          Either your N/W firewall might be rejecting the requests coming from the outside of your VPN network.


          You might not be running your JBoss instance in a public bind address. So check if you are starting your JBoss on public bind address as following:



          ./standalone.sh -b internetAddress


          Here "internetAddress"  should be an IP Address (or a registered hostname) which does not just belong to your private network (because as you mentioned that When I activate my vpn to the Server, it works.), Which indicates tat you might be running your address to some private IP.
