    Jboss Client

    Phillip Andrews Newbie

      I've successfully installed Jboss 3.0 on my Win98 P.C.

      I've also deployed a test EJB.

      But the client application only works if I'm connected to the Internet.

      As soon as I disconnect, the client is unable to connect properly with Jboss.

      The error I get is :-
      46 javax.naming.CommunicationException [Root exception is java.rmi.ConnectIOException: Exception creating connection to:; nested exception is:
      java.net.NoRouteToHostException: Host unreachable: no further information

      If I'm connected to the Internet through my Browser then it works great.

      Please help, I've tried all sorts of different configurations.

          The problem in this case is that jboss binds to your external ip.
          Most ip adresses are used for ordinary internet traffic, but a couple of them are reserved for internal networks and stuff.
          What you want to do, is to get jboss to bind to the ip (also known as localhost, or the loopback interface). That ip always points to your own computer and you don't need to be on the internet to connect to it.
          When you have managed to get jboss to bind tot hat ip, you can simply point your browser to and be happy.

          Best Wishes

            I think, in some cases, TCP/IP is only started, if you start the Internet, therefore your experience is o.k.
