Hi all
I am using getClientHost() in java.rmi.server.RemoteServer to identify different rmi clients
but it only returns the IP address
I might have in my application 2 clients with same ip

any idea how to distingish clients???

There are several discussions on this topic e.g. at the sun-forum or at JGuru or at Velocity Review's forum. More or less the solution is to pass a unique identifier passed to the server when requesting the service.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
