Client startup parameter help please

I need some clarification with the following please:
If our server started at greenhorn.ranchhand.edu,
what would the exact client startup parameter be?
java -DREMOTE_DNS=greenhorn.ranchhand.edu
-jar server.jar.
This would mean I would need to hardcode the "rmi" to get to greenhorn.ranchhand.edu
within my code so that the remote host looks like
rmi://greenhorn.ranchhand.edu.
This restricts it to only the rmi protocol. I am concerend about passing in the "rmi" title to the startup parameter as the protocol is not par of the DNS name. Any clues please help.


Never be satisfied with anything less than the best and you will surely pass the test...

You have to pass hostname as an input parameter.
i hardcoded port to default port.
so ur code will look like :
"rmi://"+hostname+"/1099";
