how do you try to connect to jboss server ?
it seems that you try to use the JNDI+RMI
invoker, which use the JNDI port
(I think it is the only used, but check ).
this port can be changed, but anyway the client
MUST be able to connect to a well known port
whe the JNDI service must be listening.
if you control the firewall you can
add rules to open connection to jboss server port 1099.
If you want to pass through a tight firewall
you may prefer to use Web Services with SOAP
protocol... I've heard it is quite easy to use
with apache SOAP package, but I've nots tested
you can also write a custom servlet
and design a custom protocol above HTTP
with POST/GET request...
It may be possible to tunnel RMI through
HTTP, but I don't think it is the case.
check the forums anyway.
think about tunneling the RMI calls
with custom RMI socket factories...
this couls be done to tunnel through SSL, but maybe
also through HTTP/HTTPS and whatever you want...
ther might even exist some existing socket factory
for common needs...
So thank's Coetmeur ...!
i agree, i must to add rules to open connection to jboss server port 1099.
