RMI Registry

Hello Folks,

I have one application which is looking up for a remote object (which itself calls and finds other objects) in the rmi regisrty on machine A port 1099. My question : Does rmi registry interfere in any other call after looking up the main remote object? Second question: since I set the rmi to communicate over any available port number (0) and I have a firewall between the client and the server, is it mandatory to open this port number while making method calls on remote objects? (rmi registry on Machine A and rmi server on machine B and only client behind the firewall).

Please your help will be highly appreciated.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "communicate over any available port number (0)"? Though, yes, if there's a firewall between the client and the server, you have to do something to open up the ports that the remote objects will be communicating over... Perhaps a few links to rmi firewall related issues would help...
