Thanx for your quick response, and link!
I just want to make sure that I understod the initialhosts parameter properly, the hosts own name should not be listed and thus make the parameter look different on each participating host, is it correct?
Also, in the default UDP stack I can see the pbcast.STATE_TRANSFER layer at the top, but it is not in the suggested TCP stack.
In initial_hosts, just list *all* hosts, or most of them.
Simply add the STATE_TRANSFER protocol from the UDP config, you'll need it for JBoss.
There's a tcp.xml in JGroups/conf (from the JGroups (src) distro)
