Hello Ranchers
This is an RMI problem. I am running a chat server on a windows network
(with an NT as Primary Domain Controller with win98 clients ).
Problem is while 8 machines are connecting to the rmi server (running on a win98
terminal) two machines which were earlier connecting are now throwing
java.rmi.ConnectException / connection refused
to host: rmiserver, no further information.
I just cant locate the problem.Please help.

are the 2 computers that are not connecting on the WinNT domain also, or are they outside of the domain? perhaps you accidentally typed in some IP addresses or something that simple. my advice is to let someone else look at your code. sometimes it's hard to find flaws in your own code
