we are also facing the same problem while trying to use the jboss3.2.1 in the DMZ(behind a firewall).
we have opened the ports 1099, 4444, 8080 and 8083.
now I additionally have to fix this so called "floating port" which the clients uses to communicate over RMI with the jboss server!
how can I fix this randomly chosen "floating point", e.g. to 4445?
I have already followed previous postings and tried to edit the jboss-service.xml as follows:
... but unfortunately this didn't help at all. the client still tries to communicate over a floating high port (and not 4445 as intended..)
I really hope that somebody in here can provide me a proper solution!
hope to hear from you soon!
