    Application can not connect to JBoss over the internet :((

    themuppeteer Newbie

      Hello Guys,

      I have an application that wants to connect to my JBOSS 3.2.2 application server over the internet.
      It all runs fine local, but when I run it from another computer, my client can not connect.
      My application is a Jar file.

      I removed 2 files from the meta-inf directory SUN_MICR.RSA and SUN_MICR.SF. This had to be done because otherwise I got security exceptions.

      I think my ISP blocks all ports under the 2000, so I already tried to change ports in jboss-service.xml file. I changed the rmi port and listen port to something bigger, here is the sample...:

      ----------------------- jboss-service.xml -----------------

      <!-- The listening port for the bootstrap JNP service. Set this to -1
      to run the NamingService without the JNP invoker listening port.
      -->
      9099
      <!-- The bootstrap JNP server bind address. This also sets the default
      RMI service bind address. Empty == all addresses
      -->

      <!-- The port of the RMI naming service, 0 == anonymous -->
      9098
      <!-- The RMI service bind address. Empty == all addresses
      -->



      ----------------------------------------------------------

      and I connect in my client (and also in my application server, when beans are talking to each other)

      -------------------- MyClient code: getInitialcontext ----
      private Context getInitialContext(String ip,String port) throws NamingException
      {
      Hashtable environment = new Hashtable();
      environment.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,"org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory");
      environment.put(Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES, "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces");
      environment.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL,ip+":"+port);
      environment.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "guest");
      environment.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "guest");
      return new InitialContext(environment);
      }
      ---------------------------------------------------------

      I used to place jnp:// before the ip, but I read on a site that I should not do that when working over the internet.. don't know if its true, but anyway my exception changd by removing it (from CommunicationException to ConnectionException).
      it goes wrong when I try to create the home interface of one to one of my beans = when I use the ctx for the first time...


      Here is the exception...
