ConnectException in Webstart clients

We have a client-server application with JBoss as AS and the clients are Swing downloaded via Webstart. Communication between C & S is RMI and JMS.

On some locations the clients can't connect to the server: a java.rmi.Connectexception is thrown because of a connection timeout.

What could be wrong? We have no idea why it only works on some locations.

Details:
--------
JBoss is behind a router and following ports are forwarded: 1098, 1099, 4444, 8080 and 8093. It is started with following switches: -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=mail.fpc.be and -Djava.rmi.server.useLocalHostname=false

The client is started with <property name="java.naming.provider.url" value="jnp://mail.fpc.be:1099"/>,
<property name="java.naming.factory.initial" value="org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory"/> and
<property name="java.naming.factory.url.pkgs" value="org.jboss.naming rg.jnp.interfaces"/>
The stacktrace is:

Is "mail.fps.be" a public server? When I try to ping it I get connection refused, and if I try to open it in a web browser I get redirected to "www.fps.be".
