I just inherited an application for administration and this is what is going on:
I have apache proxy all requests coming to it to 8080 using the following directive.
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/
# Order deny,allow
# Deny from all
# Allow from .your-domain.com
Allow from all
However if i try and connect to port 8080 directly from outside, i cannot get to the jboss server. I can get to port 8080 while logged onto the server. This server is hosted on a linux machine. iptables has no rule that blocks this port and there is no firewall in between besides that.
What could be causing the requests to be blocked to port 8080 from the outside.
Just another note. The jboss.bind.address is 0.0.0.0 as i see it in the boot.log file. So its not that jboss is listening on only localhost.
Ok i changed the default port from 8080 to 8086. I was able to get the 8086 from an outside client. What does this indicate?
