Please help.
I've got a AccessException being thrown when i attempt to bind to a rmi registry running on a remote machine. I've given full permissions to both the server and client
grant {

but it still throwns the exception:

The client attempts to bind an object to the rmiregistry on a remote machine and the above error is given back
Run the server using
java Server
Client is the same command.
Anyone any ideas?

Hi "SG" --
Welcome to JavaRanch! We ain't got too many rules here at the Ranch, but we do have our naming policy. Please read it and change your display name to match, pronto!
Now, on to your question. If the command line you're showing below is really what you're typing, then the problem is the "==" double equals; you're telling Java the policy file is named "=policy.file". Use only a single equals sign, and see if that don't fix ya up.
