This isn't really Beginner's stuff, so I'm moving this to our Sockets and Internet Protocols forum.

You can use the java.net package and classes like inetaddress etc to do your magic!

is it possible to send frames from server to client automatically after the ip's client get detected (such as login form) using the RMI aplication ???

as far as i know that RMI only call methode from server..

and i dont want the clients have the classes to call the method from server so its fully server side

thank you for the clue before
