I have developed an rmi server which runs fine on the intranet but when I try t run it on the internet the connection fails as there are some firewall issues. Can someone tell me how to use Http tunneling for my RMI calls to overcome this problem.

See the JGuru RMI tutorial, specifically the section entitled "Firewall Issues" to get a good understanding of what is going on. Then check out Sun's RMI FAQ, specifically the "Networking" section that deals with workarounds to firewalls and questions about using the cgi-script versus a servlet.
