Client App socketType failure

I am attempting to create my first EJB3 client application and I am running into a strange issue. I run Glassfish on http://localhost:8080 with an admin at http:/localhost:4848 (the server is also accessible through with admin of but I am receiving a socketType failure error when running the client which references the internal IP address provided by my router.

Here is what I do:

This is the error (internal ip changed of course!) I was hoping this would be as simple as passing a "host" and "port" parameter when starting the app, but appclient doesn't seem to accept these. Any thoughts? Is the hostname just a "red herring"?

OK, looks like I may have figured this error out. My interfaces were incorrect... will post back the solution when I know for sure...
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
