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).
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 fewlinks to rmi firewall related issues would help... [ April 22, 2005: Message edited by: Nathan Pruett ]
